Second Embroidery Block
On this one I traced the pattern on tissue paper and put some tear away stabilizer on the back and pinned them in place. After outlining the teapot and doing the handle and spout, I pulled my tissue paper off. I wouldn't be able to follow a design with the decorative stitches so I didn't need the tissue paper. Also, I found out that when I had the fancier stitches, it was harder to pull off all of the tissue paper.
All in all, I am glad I did this and got it out of my system. I found out that it is very time-consuming to use those decorative stitches and they are not the best effect.

Updates on Sewing Up My Fabric!
Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL
