Stitching Round the Block

  


Here is my Stitching Round the Block centre stitchery ready to pack up and get on it's way to Janis. The orangey coral colour is a bit outside my comfort zone, but I have tried to tone in with the Martinique fabrics I have chosen for this little quilt.  I haven't done stem stitch for the flower stems, decided instead to stick with what I know and used back stitch instead.   OOPS - I've just noticed in my pics that I haven't stitched the butterfly antenna - so I'd better go and fix that now! 

Happy stitching to all the girls out there working on this fun project - I've seen quite a few centre stitcheries complete around blogs in the last couple of days, and I guess there will be lots of wee hexies being stitched over the next couple of weeks too!  Have fun, and thanks for stopping by today.......Nicky

What a fun project. Your stitching looks great, so even. I like the bright coral. Stem stitch is fairly easy. I'm sure you could do it well if you take a chance on it.

your butterfly is sooo neat!!! Comparison is the death of Contentment

I'll have a go at stem stitch today - if not working will copy you & do back stitch.

I personally love your colours.

Watch your letter box!

Love Leanne

Hello Nicky,

Lovely stitching. Isn't funny how we think we have done it all and it stares us in the face when we blog about it. Happy stitching.

Your stitching is so perfect, Nicky!! What a fun piece!

It is strange how we notice things we left out on our stitching when we post it online... I've done that several times, too! Better to find it now that after you've sent it on its way to Janis :)

You have done a beautiful job with this. Have you made the teeny tiny hexagons yet?
