Barbara's July TAST and CQJP
In between a couple of out of town trips I finished my July CQJP block.
Pink Basque stitch is accented with hearts. The cardinal's branch has some oyster stitch leaves.
I added some fern stitch and button flowers to my faux ceramic pot. I wish that green had a higher contrast against the blue background.
I pulled this crochet motif from the goody box circulating among some of the Tuesday Stitchers and added a bouquet of silk ribbon flowers.
There's the up and down buttonhole stitch in red, accented with more buttons. The button stash got heavy use this month.
