I'm also so sad that one of my partner's block got lost on the way. She made another one and I just completed my work on it. After having lots of stress related with the postage problems, I decided not to join any RRs.
Theresa's block is my last work on a RR block. I hope she likes what I did on her block.
I tried to pay a special attention on her lovely block, which is all my favorite colors. As I always do, I tried to create something special...Especially this block was with Downton Abbey theme, should look rich!!!...My followers know me well, I love heavily embellished blocks.
I started from the longest patch, added one of my beaded oya lace long the seam. In this block I used symmetrical trios, oya flowers, laces, seam treatments etc. I used them all three pieces.
I used various types of beads on the seam treatments, I stitched chain stitches to cover seam assembly lines. I did them with metallic Kreinik threads.
My right hand tendon problem still exist, therefor I'm unable to make SRE work, however, I did lots of beading on Theresa's block. I'm so glad that I found so many neat color beads, pearls in my stash, I used them in a harmony.
This winter I'll not join any other RRs, just I'll try to complete some UFPs and start new projects.
Wishing all the best, happy stitching....
