By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Seal Part 2

I'm making slow progress on the seal..... had to do a lot of thread changes to get the look I wanted.
 I hand stitched a circle around the leaves.

 I love the 3D look on a quilt so I used 2 spools of thread. In the photo above you can see I have threaded them through the tensions at the same time. This is to prevent fraying.
 Here you see the two thread through the eye of the needle. You will probably need to use a needle threader if you want to try this method.

 Above, hopefully, you can see the slightly raised stitching on the veins.
And finally, I handed stitched the second circle.  I'm now ready to do some sort of round robin to enlarge the quilt block.

That is really interesting Rhonda. I have never done the 2 threads at a time, even though I have seen it done on a quilting show.

It's lovely - I've never done stitching with 2 spools of thread at once except for when I use the twin needle - I'm going to try that!
