I finished the first block.
I pinned it on the design wall to block it to size. (12")
I am not touching the square
instead I dampen it first with water from a spray bottle
and then use the steam from my iron to heat it up.
I leave it to dry overnight to get a very nicely shaped block \to join to its neighbor.
Which is already on the needles--
t is a double moss stitch which is ony a four row repeat.
The wooden bowl is all done--the black is epoxy that fills the worm holes. This is Maple, 5" across and 2 1/2" high.
The top is wavy because of said worm holes
but you know I like it that way!
