I have already made some progress on my CQ block.
The ribbon I bought is now decorated with French knots and chain stitches. I have also made a 'fish bone' of knotted Cretan stitches over one seam.
It's not much but it is moving in the right direction. I hope to have much more to show next week. Until then, why don't you check out what progress the others have made. Where to look, Sharon's blog of course!
