ASIAN Honeymoon - blue violet/orange yellow
Slide open the rice paper screen, a gentle breeze rustles through the canopy of cherry trees, follow a winding path carpeted with a blanket of blossom.

more Italian Border stitch
I mentioned my 3 week surface embroidery course and the Buttonhole Rose just begged for Needlewoven Pictot
Buttonhole Wheel Cups and Beaded Hedebo Edge
certainly in a spin this month!
Knotted Loop Stitch, further Italian Border Stitch
and sadly my unadorned Crane (ecru "Wisper" yarn awaited)

Oh My Word! This block is so very gorgeous it takes my breath away! That crane is fabulous as are all the roses. Such beautiful colors too.

Love that crane? How'd you attach it? Your block is wonderful! You sure did a lot of those picot thingies, and they look great! Gorgeous stitching!

Thanks Judy, I used a fusible webbing called Heat and Bond.

Very beautiful and romantic block! I love how you have used broderie perse elements across the seams this month. You have developed such a lovely style over this year of stitching.

I absolutely agree! This block is a definite favorite of mine and not just because of the color. The fabric choices and creative stitching are amazing. Beautiful!

A most beautiful block! Every single thing on it seems perfect, and fitting for what's around it. Just beautiful.

A very rich block. Rich in fabric, rich in stitches, and rich in beauty.
