It is finally starting to look like block 4 is supposed to look, but there is still quite a bit of work to do. Several parts that I laid out on the block are not yet appliqued and I need to make a second sashing. The triangles are all ready to go, so that's what I will be doing next.
I also tried my hand at tea dyeing a piece of white jobelan, to see whether I could prepare a piece that would be suitable for Herbularius. The reason is that my favourite stitching fabric - jobelan - has apparently changed consistency and now has fewer natural fibers. The piece I received a few days back really feels very synthetic and is not very nice to stitch on.
The tea dyeing worked perfectly and I love the outcome, but it is not suitable for Herbularius, because of the yellow fabrics which look nicer on Ivory jobelan. So I'm still hunting for a suitable fabric. My materials for Herbularius have now almost all arrived. So now of course I want to start!
