Part of the First Embroidered/Beaded Seam
The First Seam Completed
Close Up of the Seam
Today, I also picked up the DMC floss I needed to finish the last bit of back-stitch on the rose I am making for the center piece of the Round Robin block. I must admit, removing waste canvas is not one of my favorite activities (and I was very thankful for the use of my husband's pliers to save my poor fingers part-way through.) The trick is to only remove one to two threads at a time and to slip the straight out (without pulling upward, away from the fabric.) Here is the rose:

I hope to find time tomorrow to work on the February block. It will be a busy day, so we will see. (Speaking of which, I need to get some sleep!) Good night, all!
