    goodness, patti...I didn't tell you how much I like this block?
    I do, and especially that green.
    I found something sorta-kinda like that...foggy at the moment, but can't wait to use it.
    T'is not to be at the moment, but eventually ;-)

    Patti...it looks lovely! The blue looks like the color is moving across the scroll around the flower in the center. Is there 1 missing??? It isn't showing up on my screen...it could be dark and I can't see it though.

    I think you have done a great job - I haven't even come to any scrolls yet. Something to look forward to.

    I can't tell how it reads in person...it might be fine and just reading that dark on my monitor. I hate that you might have to redo a piece...(I know since I've redone several....:roll: )

    The more I look at it the more I know it must be replaced. It is too dark and just blends into the background fabric.

    yes, it is playing ghosty-y with us, but you did a fine job on the block.
    Rather replace one piece than hate a whole block.
    Maybe this block was your hardest and you'll catch a break after this.
    You certainly are to be commended for all that you have done lately.
    I've done a lot too...just not on AOTH :-(
    It will be all :-D :-D :-D when I do, though. hugs

    What if you were to outline it with embroidery instead of re-doing it?

    Sorry 'bout that Patti. I know how hard it is to pick one back up when you think you are finished with it! It shouldn't take long though...post again when you have it redone, ok?

    Here is my Block 19. The colors are off. I used the same gold colors on all 4 corners but 1 corner looks darker.

    Great job. Using the chain stitch gives more definition to the embroidery too.

    I like it Losie, this one was a tough one for me.

    And speaking of embroidery, boy oh boy do I have admiration for all of you churning out blocks fast doing hand applique AND embroidery...my newest adventure is painting on fabric, and I did a few 8'' blocks and wanted to outline the painted design with a stem stitch...so far, I outlined one and did that take me a long time!!! Two more to go..may take well into Christmas to finish that :lol: :mrgreen:

    Shiva paintsticks, oil based paint, is what I used. I only got a few colors to see if I like it, and I LOVE it, so guess what went on my Christmas list? :mrgreen: As soon as I have something to show, I will post a photo, Dee. Thanks for asking.

    I've looked for those sticks at my LQS Candi and they didn't stock them any longer. I can't wait to see what you are doing! I might just have to order some on line...it sounds like you are having too much fun!

    Pat, I have been doing my homework for the best deal on these paintsticks so I can forward the link to Santa :mrgreen: ( of course Santa is saying why don't you just go ahead and buy them already ,little does he know that the reason I am waiting until Christmas is that mostly likely I won't have time to play until after then :mrgreen: )

    It seems like this site has pretty good prices on them:
    http://www.madisonartshop.com/pastbr.html
    Shipping is almost $10, but it is still not a bad deal compared to other sites. Of course one can always watch Ebay or the like for great deals too.
    Ok, so don't want o hijack this thread, so I think I will post the photos in the main discussion thread.

    Thanks, DeeCee, but it's not me - it's the freezer paper! I have never even wanted to try needleturn as I get such good results with FP. Might be a bit more fiddly than needleturn what with all the prep work involved, but I think the results are worth it. Thanks again.
