Sue Spargo's Block of the Month
I found it!!! Here is block #3. You will see the threaded back stitch around the blue green leaves. The stem stitch connects the small blue circles to the center yellow and green circle. The circle bullion knot stitch is around the yellow and green cotton circle with regular bullion knot stitches around the blue center circle.I really like the lime green Valdani perle thread used for this stitch. The fly stitch is stitched over the blue center circle with metallic thread. And Sue had us add the couched variegated pink silken perle thread that goes around the pink wool flower. It is also couched 1/4" inside the flower edge.
I am really liking all these flower shapes.
