Borduur Kerskwilt - Blokke 2 en 3

My borduurkwilt vorder redelik goed, tot op hede. Ek het Blok 2 klaar en was nog besig om 'n gaping te soek sodat ek daaroor kon blog. Terwyl ek vir die gaping gesoek het, het ek blok 3 ook klaar. Dis darem 'n klein blokkie gewees, dus het daar geen wonderwerke gebeur nie.

My embroidery quilt is progressing, up to now. I finished Block 2 and was waiting for an opportunity to write a blog post about it. While waiting for the opportunity, I finished block 3 as well. It is a small block, so no miracles happened in the meantime.

Blok 4 is gereed en ek het ook al 'n paar steke vasgewerk. Dis egter te groot om in een foto te sit, dus hier is die prentjie in 3 dele (my kamera se "panoramic view" wou nie saamwerk nie)

Block 4 is prepped and I have already put a few stitches on it. It is, however, to big to put in one photo, so here is the picture in 3 parts (my camera's panoramic view wasn't working with me)

Wat ek tot dusver geleer het, is dat dit is baie moeilik om met Metallic gare te werk as jy nie die regte naald het nie. Ek hoop om binne-kort 'n naald te hê wat sal saamwerk met hierdie gare. Enige voorstelle, van die van julle wat gereeld handborduurwerk doen?

What I have learned so far, is that it is very difficult to work with Metallic thread if you do not have the right needle. I hope to have a needle that will accommodate the thread very soon. Any suggestions from those of you who does hand embroidery?
 
Laastens, ons het nou-die-dag 'n besoeker gehad - 'n Tarentaal! Hulle kom so een maal 'n jaar en dan hardloop hulle oor die mense se erwe. Gewoonlik bly hulle weg uit ons erf uit, maar hierdie keer was daar sommer 3, al spelende oor ons erf.
 
Lastely, we had a visitor the other day - a guinea fowl! They pass through the neigbourhood about once a year and normally they stay away from our yard. This time there were 3, all playing around in our yard!
 

 
Tot later!
 

Until later!

  1. I'm glad you decided to complete this quilt. Your blocks are coming along nicely. I unfortunately have not used metalic thread but I'm thinking maybe a needle with a bigger eye.

  3. The angel is sweet! I do not like using metallic thread. Always split when I used it.
