I've been stitching this in the evenings with black perle 8 thread.
At first I only stitched around the appliqué edges and pieced seams.
Then I was inspired by Sujata's recent travels in India, and added more thread.
The lines are about 1/2" apart.
I'm always astonished by how texture adds so much to a piece.
I'm so glad I spent the extra time. I love running my fingers over it.
There are 48 blocks total, 24 more to go.
Probably done by April.
