Embroider, Embellish, Create update 2

It’s been almost a month since I stitched on my cloth! This weekend I stitched the seams at the edge of block 4. I started with alternating barred chain stitch in cotton a broder.
Then I added French knots with perle 5.
On the last part of the edge I stitched crested chain stitch with perle 12. It wasn’t easy to connect 6 layers of fabric this way!
Take a closer look at block 4 with embroidered edges here.

  4. It's nice to come back to a project one has put aside for some time.
    You have stitched these pieces nicely, but it must have been a tough job with all those layers.
