Lots of Leaves!

The block I am working on  from the Civil War Bride had a lot of leaves on it.

a few more leaves

Boredom was starting to set in, so thank goodness I had some emergency chocolate stashed away!


I stitched a bit…ate a chocolate…stitched a bit…ate a chocolate…until finally all the leaves and flowers were stitched in place.

finished block

I was worried that my pink flower looked a little…well….pale.  It seemed to fade into the background.


So I carefully drew around the outer edge with a pink Sharpie marker.  Much better, I think!


Til next time…
