I finished block 4 of the Gifts of Grace series this weekend.
I'm really enjoying doing these blocks. I'm also learning new stitches as I go. This time the new stitch was the Portugese stem stitch, you can directions here: http://www.rocksea.org/hand-embroidery/stem-stitch/portugese-stem-stitch
I used this stitch for outlining the bird.
Hope you enjoy.
