More on Blocking

After reading the information on blocking, I was trying to decide on a stable surface. While browsing through the NEW Hobby Lobby in Rock Hill, I noticed their artists' canvas off 50% sale. I bought a package with two 9x11 frames. Last night I pinned some motifs and sprayed them with stiffener. We'll see what the results are and get photos later.

Well, they turned out pretty good - so I pinned and sprayed my first bookmark this evening! I'm sure someone has written a pattern for it, but I just made it up as I went along without following a pattern. It is made with DMC #80 in variegated blue. 22

  1. I've never had to do much blocking--just a quick spritz and a touch of the iron, but that is about to change and I'm soaking up all of this information. Thank you for sharing.
