Round Robin 2014- Florence

I am participating in a Round Robin with the Southern Cross Crazies an online Yahoo group.

This month I had Florence's block to work on. Everyone has made six blocks and we pick one of them to embroider. Florence's blocks were all cream and she was very specific in what she wanted.

Here is the block that I picked to work on.

Florence's base block
Florence has picked a floral theme and requested very subtle colours. She only wanted white, cream, beige, pale apricot and soft shades of olive.

I am used to using a lot of colour and so this was very different for me. I had to be very subdued.
I think the end result turned out very well though. It is a very soft, pretty block.

Florence's Block
I hope she likes it. Now I have to pack it up and send it off to the next person on the list.

Bye for now,

Thanks Gina and Renata, I am waiting for the next block to arrive at the moment. Who knows what I will get to work on next.

Lorraine said...

Well done Linda! I think Florence will be delighted. A lovely combination of seam treatments and subdued colours.

Thanks Lorraine, it was really beneficial to make such a subtle block, I usually learn something from these Round Robins.

Your colours and stitching are absolutely perfectly "Florence". She will be very, very pleased, I'm sure.

Thanks Viv, it will be exciting when we get them back later on this year.
