What are you most proud of? I have been embroidering for many years but I have learnt and executed one or two stitches I have never used before.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I found a gizmo in my husband's drawing stuff that he tells me is called a flexi-curve. It was really useful with the free style block. I curved it into the shape I wanted on the block (it stays in that shape) then traced it onto my fabric. See other picture.

This is a completely awesome use for this tool. I've had it for years but never thought of putting it to work like this!

Thank you. I did most of this while watching t.v. so I didn't notice the time. regards, Shirley
