Making Progress

I am so excited that I am finally finished appliqueing on this piece. Now its on to doing the embroidery on it.
There will be a lot of stitching to be done. This afternoon I marked where needed.

  I used a water erasable marker, I like the Fine Marker-Blue Chako Ace pen. I have had very good luck with it washing out of the fabric.

 Now there will also be stitching on each of the leaves but didn't bother to mark. I can probably just wing it.
  When I was on the bus trip last month there was a shop that carried Cosmos Floss. No one around here  sells this thread so I'm looking forward to stitching with it. I have heard that it is so smooth and leaves a beautiful stitch. I'll let you know what I  think about it. I have 2 variegated skeins.  I'll use on the right for the leaves and the other one I'll use on the stems (left).
Now if I wasn't trying to do so many different projects at the same time and just stick to one, I could have this done a lot sooner but chances are it will be a while before I get this part finished and on to the quilting. I'll be hand quilting.
I wrote a post on another blog about the tools I use while hand quilting, the blog is  called celebrate hand quilting.  Check it out. A lot of great info being put on there.

Till next time

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
