Where did October go?!? It’s time for me post the 8th block of “To Everything There Is A Season”, a BOM I launched back in April. If you are new to my blog and you haven’t seen the blocks yet, here they are! All of the patterns are available for purchase on my website Simple Bird Studio. The patterns are available either as a digital pattern (which I will email to you) or as a paper pattern (which I will mail to you). The choice is yours.
And here is Block 8, The Poinsettia, just in time for the upcoming festive season. (It will be here before you know it!)
Here are a few close-up photos. The yellow centres are made of Ultra Suede. This is where I purchase my Ultra Suede. I love the little bit of texture that Ultra Suede adds! I also stitched around each yellow centre with one strand of gold embroidery floss. I added a few French knots to the flowers, but I used 2 strands of embroidery floss for those.
I also used one strand of brown floss to embroider around each of the ovals on the vase and around the darker handle on the right side. Fancy!
Til next time…
