Contemporary Embroidery Class

Karen Ruane from Comtemporary Embroidery has offered on online course!!! You can find the link here!!
I am making a white on white cloth - here is a photo of the layout of the first block. I'm using several different types of cloth - but all in white.
It's tacked together and I've added a piece of vintage lace at the top right.
 Next, I'm learning a new stitch!
I did the edges. Next I started with French Knots . . .
and got carried away!
More to follow, Love, Linda
