After digging in my Christmas decorations, I found this cute little police boy with a big sign saying "No Snooping before Dec. 25th" and I knew right then and there that I had found my special piece for my block. This little sweetheart must be over 50 years old, at least. I inherited it from my parents.
I made another seam, the one on the upper left of my block. This stitch is called "Threaded Running Stitch" and can be seen here on Sharon's web site: http://inaminuteago.com/stitchdict/stitch/running-threaded.html .
I thought that writing the word "Noël" with yellow silk thread would look good at this particular place so I opened up my MSWords and tried different fonts until I found one that I liked and used it on my block.
