RR block

I'm so quiet for blogging. It is so hot here in Istanbul. I don't have enough energy to stitch and being creative. However, I enjoyed so much to work on a RR block. I've explained the rules of this RR in my previous posts. As being third person to work on this RR my responsibility was to do motifs, embroidery without too much additional decoration. The next person will add beads, buttons, charms etc....I envy her job on this lovely block!!!!:))
Now, let me start to tell you what I did. Melodie's block theme is "Grandfather's Garden". Can you think a grandpa's garden without bird house? I did a bird house with little flowers its underneath.

I embroidered this little bird with blue tones of the silk floss. I thought it should be well looking under the Maureen's beautiful Forget me knots. The seam treatment at top looks so pretty, isn't it?
I wanted to create something like a rose garden on this green part of the block which is the center piece. My roses aren't so successful, the fabric was a little bit tough for the SRE, I couldn't pull the needle easily. My tendinitis problem at right hand still exists. However, I think this part looks fine, what do you think? At last, I added a lace dragon fly, I dyed it with coffee. It should be looking much better with some beads and bugles. I'm sure that Reneta who is the next person to work on this block, she should do wonderful touches.
