This is where I have got to in the pear block. I took a different approach this time. Rather than stitching a leaf at a time I stitched all of one colour across the block, starting with the single colours and moving on to blends. It seemed to be much faster, think I'll take that approach again. Next week I'll start on the actual fruit - I'm away this weekend, and have a new start in my bag as a travelling piece!
Oh, and as a Halloween treat, check this cake out. One of my students made it for our weekly 'bone cafe' (they study skeletons, hence the name). Isn't it amazing??? One was chocolate and the other vanilla, and they were both fabulous!
