I decided to have a theme for my blocks and my theme is Christmas. It's now October and Christmas decorations have started to appear in the shops. I hardly batted an eye when I saw them because I have been thinking about Christmas all year!
My October block is green and is 12" wide. I embroidered the rocking horse in the centre with stem stitch.

I did the candle in stem stitch as well. I found some fun little buttons for an embellishment and put some lazy daisies (detached chains) around them to look like flowers.
I put some stockings hanging from a vine with some spider roses in 4mm red ribbon.
This is what the base block looked like before I added the embroidery.
It's hard to believe that there are only 2 more blocks to go.
Bye for now,
