Block nine in progress

 I have been stitching the many leaves of this block every evening this week. Yesterday, I added the stems which makes sense of all the leaves scattered throughout the block. This morning I am adding the final stem.

Then I will be moving on to the eight buds that are on this block. Once these are completed, I can start the three layered flowers. I love getting to the stage where I can add the red flowers. The blocks are rather boring with all the green leaves. It is a bit like growing a garden, Carefully watching as the leaves multiple. and the plant gets larger. But, the  reason we grow the plant is to see it blooming. So this week will be a fun week as each evening I get to see my block blossom.

  1. I really admire your applique. I am going to try this technique next.
    Enjoy watching your flowers bloom!
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

    1. Thanks Kathy, Keep practicing and you will be successful with your applique. I remember being so frustrated and fighting fray threads, but now my I know where to place that needle to get the fabric to do what I want it to do, so addictive!

  2. All your leaves are perfect. Hope you get to your blooms soon.

  3. I have one more bud to finish this evening, and I will wait till tomorrow to start my layered flowers. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Lovely stems and leaves - and so many of them! Looks like a challenge but fun!

  5. Really nice work! Looking forward to seeing the plant bloom.
