SAL Update 6.13.21

Hello Friends! I made a little progress on Block 18 – Bee Bountiful. As you can see, I’m starting with the barn in a traditional red color. It’s so much fun seeing the design come to life!

SAL Update 5.23.21

Hello Friends! No stitchy progress this go around, but I did prep my fabric for the next block. Here’s Block 18 – Bee Bountiful. I took the liberty to do a little redesign on this barn as the original left off the roofline and I found it to look a bit incomplete. I’m much happier with the touch up! The cornstalks and the bee is teeny so I tried very hard to be soft handed with my tracing, but ultimately I’ll have to reference the paper design to ensure I stitch the corn and leaves where they should be. Loading to my q-snap and I’ll get to backstitching soon!

SAL Update 5.2.21

Finally! Block 17 Bee Happy is now finished! In fact, I finished it today and the block is fresh out of the sink laying out to dry. It took a while for all of the water soluble stabilizer to come out of all those tiny spaces. My hands definitely hurt, this block was heavy in backstitch as you can see. Probably my least favorite block to stitch, but it might be my favorite finished block!

Here’s where I was before:
