Fan # 4 :as yet no embellishment.I must re-tweak my scanner and make the colours "truer".I realize that I'm not practising what I preach:Insufficient patterns and textures in block but hopefully embellishing will provide that.

Okaaaaaay - testing if I can now comment. And I think I can. So, Hello World!!!

Re patterns on blocks - I am tending to use them less and less now - although "self-patterned" stuff I still like. I just find they stop me showing off stitching.

But it is individual preference - and no rulzzzzzzzzz.

Just know I like working on RR blocks that arrive without a lot of patterns on them as well.
Welcome aboard Chloe.......The other members won't know you as yet,but I'm sure you'll be giving HEAPS of relevent info :-)
(Ladies I invited Chloe in to join us as she is a veritable walking encyclopaedia on CQ,tatting and waste-canvas X-stitch!)
Chloe (love that name, my favourite perfume ) Can I ask you about waste canvas xstitch...what does the 'waste canvas' look like is it a looser weave, I would like to have a try at this, what would I have to buy as the 'Waste canvas'
In case Chloe didn't see your comment,I've replied to you by email -------I've bought mine at Spotlight,as "waste canvas".That place at Sandgate should carry it.There are several different "counts" in the fabric is all I know.Chloe is the waste canvas queen,so hopefully she'll give you more details.
