These are my blocks afterr lessons four and five. To the fairy block I have added buttons and beads that are exploding magically from her out stretched arms. Some beads and sequins scatered through the feather stitching in the corner and a brass button with a cupid on it are the other hard embelishments. To the lace in this block I added chinelle laced heringbone and a few bugle beads.
To the lilac lace in this block I added stamens in apricot and japanese ribon stitch petals in SRE. I had a lovely orange button that I used som beads to anchor it extending the loopy metalic laced running stitch. To the hand dyed lace I tacked it with three sequined flowers and some beads allong the button hole stitch opposite. I use bead soup to feather stitch down the watermellon patch. After all that I realized that the small purple patch in the corner needed to be made grand so I added some ribbon. I have yet top embelish that I know I may have trouble because the floss will catch on the hard embelishments But live and learn...
