ウールのDYBラウンドロビン Riva's All Wool DYB Block


All Wool DYB RR of CQI started last month. I always received members blocks from Ritva in Finland. This is the first envelope with her own blocks. As everyone may knows, Tove Jansson's Mumin series is worldwide popular. Isn't it so cute? Though it's not so clear, postal stamps are also Mumins. The package was so lovely I took a photo before opening.

This is the block I chose and started.


She wanted only stitching with threads if possible wool, not beads nor sequins. No SRE. Some buttons are OK.


Now I've found the colour combination she pieced for this block is very similar to the Mumin envelope. Don't you think so? I sometimes feel each nationality has own favorite colour from its cultural background.

Oh Hideko, this blocks shows so well the elegant symmetry of your stitching. The bouquet is lovely, and the little bee knows that too :-) Lynn, SoCal
