It is round two and I received Alison's blocks. We all made six 6" blocks and we choose one to embroider and then post them on to the next person on the list. I chose a pretty pink one to embroider.
One block had already been done by Patti; she had chosen a peach coloured block and had done some beautiful work on it. The round robins are a great way to see other people's embroidery up close.

I started out by choosing my threads, Alison wanted to keep the embroidery in the colours of the base but we could add a couple of other colours like green for the leaves.
Usually I start in the middle and embroider any motifs first but this time I started on the outside with the seam treatments.
Here is the finished block; luckily these 6" blocks don't take very long to do.
I have already posted these blocks onto the next person and have received the next lot of blocks, so at least it gives me some hand sewing to do when I go to friendship groups.
Bye for now,
