Another CQJP finish

And this is my block for November all done and dusted.


I have managed to incorporate a few TAST stitches in this piece - half cretan, crossed buttonhole, butterfly chain, bullion knots and knotted cretan. Trying to work out how to fit them in is good for the brain cells! and it is great to be trying different stitches.

A few close ups.


 Two layers of half cretan make the triangular section.

 Knotted cretan along the bottom.

 The zig zag on the left is butterfly chain.

The row of crossed stitches on the left is crossed buttonhole and the flower petals are bullion knots.

Today I am linking up with

hosted by Super Mom - No Cape. This is a linky for all things hand embroidered so do pop over and see what everyone has been up to.

Fabulous block! I think my favorite seam is the yellow and black on the bottom left with the fern stitching and pistle stitches. I just know I'm going to find a place to use that!
