I have mentioned that I am in a Round Robin in the Yahoo group CQI novice group. There are 5 of us in the group, we each do part of a block and mail it on to the next person. I have finished my part of the first block that I have received! Yay! This is Leslie's block, or blocks. She sent out 2 - 6" blocks. I chose to work on the one on the right. I love both of these blocks, the color and type of material is just beautiful.
This is a close up of my finished product! I did a Herringbone stitch in the upper left corner with DMC Rayon thread along with straight stitches and beads on the bottom. A feather stitch on the right below the spider web in Vicki Clayton Silk Perle 8 thread and the leaves are DMC Perle 5. The Lazy Dazy flowers are a Vicki Clayton Silk Perle 8 variegated. I love the variegated threads. Adds such dimension! I used a Sulky thread for the spider web, another great thread! The ribbon rose is made out of The Thread Gatherer ribbon, Fairy rose.
And this is the whole block. I so enjoyed working on this, I didn't want to mail it on to the next person! LOL I love the colors and how it turned out. I guess I will just have to start making something for myself soon!
The weather has been dreary for days! I am so ready for some sun! Is there a sun dance...you know...like a rain dance? I would be more than happy to do a sun dance if there were such a thing. ;)
