CQ Block: Task Ten (of 12)

 Fargo Roses.   Challenge for them to be the same size.   Challenge to have them look similar.   

 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:

 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.

4th of July

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.
