Ack! I nearly destroyed this block before I ever started on it. This was almost entirely embroidery so I used the same Sulky stabilizer that I’ve used previously. This one calls for some applique on the 3 spools so I used Heat ‘n Bond on the back of the fabric. And then….I don’t know if I was distracted or what but I attempted to press the fabric on where the wash away stabilizer was. Bad, bad, bad mistake. It crinkled up and was generally a mess.
Waste not, want not though so I forged ahead and made the best of it. I did decide that I liked the fabric I used and skipped the embroidery over it because I thought it looked like thread wound around there anyway.
I finally got this one done this evening after 8 in the evening but wanted to take a picture and get it hung up on the wall. It’s still wet from where I rinsed the stabilizer off. I can see now that I didn’t get my stitches close enough on the stem of that middle leaf on the right. Sometimes it’s hard to tell with the stabilizer on, but the trade-off for not transferring that entire design by hand makes it worth it! That makes me one block behind (again – haha!)
