Wool Block Number 2

Drum roll... Here is my second block for the wool wall hanging I am designing.

I wanted to sew around the background fabric before I started the applique to prevent fraying as I stitch, but did not feel like contending with Sapphire the cat, as she had gotten to my chair before I did... Thus, the hanging threads!

This design was based on a drawing by Rita Martin (1986). It features my husband's favorite ducks. After I applique the wool, it is so nice to figure out where to embroider, and what to add to the block.

Here are more details:

I am mixing threads (DMC floss and Presencia # 16 - my favorite!). Buttons and glass beads made a come back on this block, and you will see them again on block 3, which is almost ready!

What a nice way to beat this cold weather we are having: 6 degrees (F) this morning here in Utah. Let me know what you think of the block!
