We ended up getting about an inch of snow from the storm that was supposed to miss us, but at least it is up to 16* today. (grin) Still calling for a nice weekend. I am looking forward to that.
Last night, I dug through my tote bin that has prepped embroidery blocks ready to do. I found this snowman and snowlady block and decided it would be nice to do this week since Valentine's Day is so close. I wanted to do it a little differently, though. So I did it in black instead of red. I also used Perle cotton #8. What do you think?
Sandi. I printed it off and prepped it over a year ago, so can't really be sure. That hat on the lady took quite a while. LOL
Yesterday, Pat asked how I use fleece in my embroidery. I don't use the fusible, just plain fleece. I cut a piece of fleece the same size as my embroidery piece. Then I pin it to the back of the project and embroider through it. It keeps the thread from showing through to the front. Here is another project with the fleece fastened to the back of it.
