this last week I have been working on the february block, have kept a flower in the centre block, a snowdrop as I have one out in the garden.
I have also gone with the valentine theme and put a cherub and couple of hearts on it.
I have used assorted stitches, stem, straight, detached chain, oyster, knotted feather, spine chain, wheatear with beads and blanket with some straight stitches.
Another piece of tatting in orange. This month the block seems to be quite orange but I do like it with the green.
There are one or two areas that look a little bare but these I can add to when the other 10 blocks are completed and I decide what to do with them.
This did not photo well, the colours are not true and although have tried again it still comes out this colour
I have also done the tast stitch 51 today, raised herringbone band. 4 samples of the stitch, the first 3 rows were counted out geometrically but row 4 was stitched in a random manner.
