Autumn Rose Block

It rained here all day yesterday. As you can see, I had alot of time to focus on stitching!

Autumn Rose Block

I've been working with my Carol Samples book and trying to do some different stitches rather than relying on the old faithfuls that I always use. Instead of my traditional feather stitch, I did the maidenhair stitch. And being that it has a floral theme, I of course had to add a spider web. I really like doing them.

I've also been using 10 count waste canvas on this piece rather than my usual 8.5 count. It makes the stitches a bit smaller.

When I complete this, I'll be making it into a handbag for my Esty Boutique.

And speaking of my shop, I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in some ready-to-stitch pieced blocks? I imagine I have some readers who would love to try crazyquilting but are without a sewing machine or maybe you don't know how to do the foundation piecing.

Please give me some feedback on this. If anyone is interested in something like that, I can sew up a few and post them in my shop.

Hi Pam,
I would be interested in some ready to stitch blocks. Do you have any idea of the cost? And would you have theme or just a color preference? June

Hi June,

I haven't thought of what to charge yet but it doesn't take me long to sew up blocks. I'm thinking somewhere around $12 or $15 for a 9 inch block and certainly less for smaller blocks.

I thought I'd start with a few based on color and then maybe add some themed ones later.

What do you think?

As usual (isn't that kind of depressing expression? *grin*) this one is beautiful! :)

Hi Pam, yes i would be interested in some 8in blocks. I'd be interested in ones done in tonal groups of the same colour. How much would they be and would you sell to the UK?
