Finished Part 4 Vase for Love Entwined

I have finished Part 4 of LE, which doesn't mean I have totally completed the previous parts, I am trying to get it all done, lol.

So here are a couple of photos. I will be getting Part 5 vase of flowers prepped over the next few days I hope...

Not much else going on in sewing/quilting because I have been so focused on this project.  Hope everyone else doing LE is enjoying it as much as I am.

Happy stitching,

Love Entwined Part 4

I have been working on the applique on LE fairly regularly and really enjoying the hand work.  I did fiddle around quite a bit trying to decide on appropriate fabrics for Part 4, the vase of flowers.  Initially I thought I would do it all Broderie Perse but as I cut out the fabrics I felt I wanted a more scrappy look so I have mixed it up a bit.  I also settled on stem stitch embroidery for the flower stems and I am really pleased with the ones I've done so far.  I haven't religiously stuck to the pattern , I liked the pattern but felt a less crowded look would suit my little project better.  So I have used some much smaller flowers and skipped a couple altogether.  I'm in the process of prepping the berries and then I won't be far off finishing this section and I can go back and complete a couple of things that I didn't finish, that pesky zig zag...ric rac is looking better and better, lol.  I have some very teeny circles to stitch down and four more Oak Leaf type shapes to complete.  I can't wait for the next part to be released!

Here are a couple of photos ( I definitely ain't no great shakes as a photographer)

Better get back to prepping so I can stitch the berries down tonight.

Happy stitching,
