I'm still working on my blocks from Jenny's newsletter. If you get the Elefantz newletter and have not yet begun this project, you really should consider it...it is really very sweet and quiet nice to stitch. I still have to add the white embroidery (running stitch, stem stitch, blanket stitch) to the fusible pieces...but, it is almost done.
The little bird is looking a slight bit dark. But, I think the addition of the white stitching will help to balance him out. The thread color is a gray/brown and is the same as the words in the center block...so, I'm hoping that all will be fine when the blocks are together.
