Mommie's Tie's Block is Done!

I finally have the Mommies Ties square I posted last time done. I am busily working on the second one in the same colors so I can make a needlecase/book out of the two squares.

See you later!

My Mommy's Ties Block

Here is my first block I have made using a pattern written by Carole Samples called Mommy's Ties. Last year when she came to teach at my Victorian Stitchery Retreat she taught this class. I didn't take the class and of course, now this is one of the classes I will be teaching in Maine for her. I carefully read through the pattern and talked to her a couple of times with some questions and is my square. Of course I had to use pink ties, that being my favorite color! I am anxious to begin embellishing it! I made two of them because I want to make a larger sized needle case with them. Part of the curriculum for the class is learning to make your own "needlelace" to embellish the top of the fan. I'll keep you posted on what I end up designing for my "lace".
