CQ Block (so far). I have two more tasks to do before it can be a finish. This is part of Kathy Seaman Shaw's BCQC-101 class. More information can be found here: http://www.shawkl.com/.
Woven Roses + Kreinik Metallic #8 Braid (042). I look forward to adding charms, beads, buttons, etc. I think there is another ribbon embroidery task to complete before the embellishing.
Seven Fargo Roses - that don't really look alike! Ribbon Embroidery is so new to me. I forget how different surface stitching is to counted specialty stitches on linen.
This is such a good course. The information provided is exceptional. I'm taking my time to learn and have enjoyed each task.
And, yes, I did get my Bent Creek pattern finished into a pincushion - which I've been using. The bobbin lace edge sewn on - it really is a small pincushion. I used wool roving, pretty light weight.

I've been taking Bobbin Lace classes via Zoom, and had finished this edge. Found a Bent Creek stitched piece in my stash (of things to finish) and added some beads. Planning to finish into a pincushion.
