Joyful Girl Update - FYB Makealong

>> Friday, July 29, 2011

I have been playing with blocks to go around my embroidered girl block.
I got stuck trying to figure out how to make this look like I thought I wanted it to look:)

Play has led to more little ideas like this -

I plan to add different stitches and maybe even some lace to this large block.
It measures 16 1/2 inches square.
It could become the front of a pillow - or maybe a little tablecloth for a magical teacup like Jackie made.

My Joyful Girl has ended up in something looking like a house!
I do want to make this into a small wallhanging, more rectangular than square.
Now I'm trying to decide on what to add to make this work.

Laura Wasilowski has a really fun blog and lots of embroidery education to share - go take a look!

I was without internet for just under a week and spent some time planning my mixed media adventure for this makealong. I'll save that for another post as I'm off to go camping this weekend and won't have much time to work on anything while I'm there.

How is your making coming along?

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Sarah! Your girl block is gorgeous! Now I am inspired to try hand embroidery.

Sarah, I got my embroidered block done and have posted a picture. Now I need to decide what to do next. Hugs

Sarah I love your girl block. I have posted a pic on the Makealong flickr page. Mine is in the waiting stage - waiting for another idea to surface.
