This particular block is not as heavily stitched as some. Yes there is a gap in the upper left corner. My scattered French knots appear to end up nowhere. There is a reason for this, one I'll be sharing once the entire quilt is put together.
So, this is what block 9 looks like completed (so far!).
About time I shared some stitching so here is a section of block 9 from my Dark Dusty project. I've played with a variety of threads in this section. I've used some floss, wool and a rayon ribbon which is woven between stitches. Have also added beads to embellish some hand dyed lace.
In celebration of the Sunshine Sampler I am offering a giveaway. Included are the threads shown above and Rebecca's sampler for you to stitch as you wish shown below.
