Stitched Sunday- Satin Stitch

I have three in the Stitched Sunday series to catch up on.  When you look at them, it doesn't seem a lot, but they do take a little time to complete.

Satin stitch was released before I went away, but I didn't get a chance to get it done, so it's the first to be completed now.
Satin stitch is one of my favourites, so I really enjoyed this block.  I usually outline the section to be completed to give a bit more definition to the satin stitch, but I'd never added an outline around the completed area before.  I added one to the ribbon at the top and really like the effect.   This is something to remember for future reference.

Neat block. I have not done any satin stitching in a long time but it make a piece stand out nicely.

Beautiful! I love this piece.

This block is really pretty! I like the idea of outlining the satin stitch too. It really does add another dimension to it! :0)

This looks very pretty. It's so hard to get those satin stitches parallel and laying neatly side by side!

very pretty Jane. I'm not a fan of satin stitch, not sure why but I can't seem to get the hang of it.

What a cute piece, I love that pink ribbon at the top -- such nice movement.

Oh I'd forgotten about these blocks. This is just lovely, although I have to admit to a certain bias as I love dragonfly motifs.
