Last week I was taking a little break in Sydney. It was too much fun and getting back into my routine has been a challenge but I have completed block 26 in the lace block series.
Click on the image to see a larger version.
The block in the lace quilt are 7 inch blocks and there are 49 to do so I am slowly working my way through the stack of blocks I have pieces but have yet to embroider. If you want to see what this block looked like when I started you can see it here.
Some readers might notice a different looking stitch. This is a stitch I have always wanted to explore further. It is called half bud stitch (as there is a fuller version) and I plan to include it in my next stitch module. I am quite excited as to how this worked up and what to explore it further which I will do!

What a fun new stitch! First I thought it was an oyster stitch, but in the close up it’s clear it’s not. Looking foreward to see this in the stitch module and give it a try, it’s always fun to try a new stitch!
My progress for this week is here:
Your block is absolutely stunning! I really must learn to embellish like that! You can see my WIP at http://princessbubblescreates.blogspot.ca/
Hi Sharon, that block is beautiful. I’ve just spent ages admiring your work on the larger image, there is so much to see. The half bud stitch looks fun so I’m off to look up how to do it.
I loved the photos of you in Sydney – another place on my list of ‘would love to visit’. I hope you had a great trip.
I posted my progress last week but forgot to link it because I was getting stressed out with all my commitments so here is my link to that post. Work has got in the way this week so no progress on anything.
You have made a beautiful block. In spite of being on holiday you can focus on creating such beauty.
My progress was minimal:
I have two more blocks for my “champagne” quilt.
I thought about saving one till next week, but posted them both now. I don’t know that the cow lace fits with this quilt, but it makes me smile.
