First RR block of 2011

After a long break, I joined a new RR with old CQ'er buddies with Victorian ntheme. I received first block of Juliette from U.K. Her cream color block is gorgeous with vintage fabrics.I started from the longest patch to create a seam treatment with a simple Herringbone stitch with cream color silk thread, added lazy diasies iwth Kreinik metallic thread. The pearls that I used are cream colors as well. I added brown Swarovski crystals to catch more elegant look.

Afterwords, I embroidered a little fan, I thought its brown color should make a nice harmony with the seam treatment. Its tassel from seed beads. Now, this lovely block is ready to start its long way. I'm waiting another block to play with it.

Rengin, your work is beautiful and elegant in both color and style. It might be a fan but looks like a butterfly too. I am very glad to see your nice work again!! Hideko

Rengin, the block is beautiful. At first glance I thought the fan was a butterfly...looks great either way. Glad your feeling well enough to stitch.
