Polka Dot Girls Block 4

A quick post to show some progress on the Polka Dot Girls, this is block #4. I still need to finish the piecing for this block. Each block has a larger stitchery and a smaller stitchery, I've finished the piecing for Blocks 1 to 3 see here, here and here. Darlene is doing her blocks all in redwork, hers looks fantastic, I love them ALL. This lady is ready for a busy day in the garden. We've had a little sun on and off, mostly off. My camellia, tulips and the bleeding hearts are all starting to bloom. The snow turned some of the flower petals brown before they could fully bloom but I'm still enjoying the colour coming out in the garden, we sure need it after such a looog winter. I can't complain too much as Karen is still having huge snow falls, don't worry sister it will be melted in no time....LOL

I hope you are having a good week so far. Keep Stitching!

The polka dot girls are adorable. I'm sending an email to the Honeysuckle Cottage to see if they have it in stock. I love it!

Her redwork is beautiful! But I think I prefer the colors in yours. Very cheery!!

Your Polka Dot Girls are too cute for words. Wish I had your stitching talents. I've always wanted to try stitchery, I do good to stitch a couple of french knots (maybe for birds eyes) on an appliqued piece. LOL Thanks so much for sharing. I'm glad I found your blog.

Wendy I just love your PDG's - that's a lot of work in those stitcheries. I'm struggling to keep up with my Kathy Schmitz one's right now. Thanks for thinking of me on the snow, your a sweetie. Today was beautiful and a lot of that dang white stuff is gone.

hugs - Karen

Wendy,

I love your needlework that you are doing. I've never tried that before. I don't think I have the patience for it. So I have a lot of admiration for people who do.

See you soon

Karen
