All caught up! :)

Hello!  :)

I finally got a chance to work the embroidery for my Garden Steps Quilt. I was a little behind but now I'm all caught up. Yea!  :)  At least with this project that is.  ;)

Here's the first stichery . . .


And a closer look . . .


I added red roses and a ladybug.  :)

Here's the second stitchery . . .


And a closer view . . .


I added a ladybug to this one too. I think I'm going to add a ladybug to all the blocks. I did notice a big boo-boo on this block when I was taking pictures. Did you notice? The second block should be turned 1/4 turn. The longer red strips should be on top. Oh well. I will need to fix this later. Shouldn't be too hard of a fix just a pain. Next time I will definitely be a little more careful.  :)  The stitching designs only come out every other week so I have a couple more weeks until I see the next one. Now this project can be put aside while I work on a couple more.

Until next time . . .

I just love them both! The blocks and the embroidery! I really like the lady bug! I just finished my first quilt project. It was small, but I sure think it was frustratingly lots of fun!! Ha ha!

These blocks are so cute. I love the courthouse block, and adding the embroidery really makes it special. Did you do it by hand?

I used to do counted-cross-stich. But, now I only sew and knit. Easier to knit while distracted by young kids. :)
