Embroider, Embellish, Create-Week 2

We have just started week two of the Embroider, Embellish, Create course and it started with damp stretching our work. I must say, I am in love with damp stretching, it really adds to the way the work looks.

 These are the first two pieces after being damp stretch.  After seeing them on the board, I was able to see where extra embellishment was needed.  While I was waiting for them to dry, I needed another piece to stich, so this is piece number three.
 Piece number one, with the stitching complete
 Piece number two completed



Piece number three is going to represent my eldest son and I shall enjoy working on it as soon as it comes off the board

These are so pretty! Will they all go together into one piece when you're done?

I had no idea that blocking an embroidered piece could make such a difference. This is beautiful.
