Another Embroidered Wall Hanging

This will be a small wallhanging - these are small 4 inch blocks bordered in one inch sashings and I am using a beautiful Moda charm pack that I just love.  I am going to change out the cornerstones on this block and have them all scrappy.

 Here are some more of the blocks being embroidered.  I'm using a really dark brown-black that was always used for backstitching on crossstitch.  I could even remember the number of the DMC floss - 3371.  How's that for trivia?
A few more of the blocks done except for some running stitching around them.  There will be 11 blocks and the middle row will have a half block top and bottom on which I will find a little spray to embroider on that.  Maybe I will do my name and date - will have to see.  For some reason, I am excited about this one - probably because I love this fabric so much.  We'll see how it turns out.  (Click to enlarge)

Oh that is so very pretty, I always love blackwork the most. It seems to go the fastest for me, and I think that is because I love the outcome look. Leif and I spent the day at MSU with our oldest son today. What a nice day we had.
