CQI RR Update

Finally an update with pics of a block that I am working on. This block belongs to Carol from CQI RR Sampler. The block came to me with a stain in the upper corner of the beige patch. The more I thought about it the more I decided I could not let this block go home to Carol with a stain on it. So........I took matters in hand and used the trusty Spray & Wash sprayed the patch down really good and let it sit overnight. The next morning I took a toothbrush that I use for removing stains and rubbed until finally the stain was removed. Then I rinsed the patch with warm water to make sure all the spray and wash was out. Now we have a block with no stains to send on to the owner! I hope Carol does not mind that I took the liberty to remove the stains. I just could not allow myself to send it to her in the condition in which it was in.You can see the stain in the upper right hand corner of the block. The pic below is of the now clean and stain free area!

Below is a pic of one seam that I am finished stitching so far. I may add some beading later as I am still trying to decide what to put if I do. I am also working on a spiderweb motif and spider for Carols block. I will show a pic of that area when I have completed the web and spider. Carol's block has some very pretty work done already, and we are winding down with this rr. I can hardly wait to see my block and all the work that has been done to it.

That's all I have for today unless I finish something later on today. Until next time, Happy Stitching everyone.

Oh Wendy, you are such a love. I am sure it will be appreciated. I will be watching the spider with interest, my son wants to do an embroidery of his tarantula.
