Hello my friends.
I have been unwell with flu the few weeks.
No stitching at all till late yesterday:(
I decided after seeing Fiona`s stocking block
to use a Christmas thread for wording.
One of my sister`s gave me
Cottage Garden Thread: Mistletoe
as part of my gift last Christmas.
I thought it suited July block,
so I am using it in this quilt.
I will re stitch block one`s words to match.
I am pleased with this block.
The stand and topping have gold thread,which makes it sparkle.
I used DMC 3052 for tie and back stitching of holly.
The blanket stitch on holly is DMC 936.
The pudding DMC 3047.
Heart DMC 816.
Berry DMC 221.
I have cut out applique pieces for next block.
I only need to work out what size my background piece is to be.
