Suz-- Update on CQJP and WIP

Hi everyone. We are madly packing, and stacking boxes, but I take some time in the evening to stitch.
My June Block is complete:
I beefed up the pretty pink and white gimp trim with rows of buttonhole lace, added some purple to the fly stitch seam, and two seams of cast-on stitch chains, one in green and one in pink.

July has a lovely piece of warm lace-- a rose!-- pinned into place. I like how the fabric  below the lace repeats the curve..........

There are lots of little seams to embellish!

Work continues on my wrapping cloth.
 This little dangle reminds me of a berry. It has 3 woven picot leaves and is topped with a Josephine knot cascade

It dangles on 3 buttonhole wrapped threads
and piece #6 is completed

Piece #7 is a little larger and has a 'wild' framed center lace piece with lots of open space for embellishing
I hope you've had some time this week to create, too.

I'd best get back to packing!

Happy Stitching!

Hugs from Suz

Best of luck with all that packing ... and then the unpacking! I like the June block, but the July block is really so pretty before a stitch goes in, so it's bound to be beautiful when its stitched. I see what you mean about the curves and I like that echo, too.

Wow Suz you are whizzing these out at a phenominal speed now. Fabulous addition to #6. Love the start of #7.

I fully intend to travel to Canada and steal this wrapping cloth when you are done. Please be sure and send me your new address.

NOT if you intend to steal my cloth!

Oh darn, foiled again!

Love your blocks and the cloth! The colors in both are just perfect. Now I need to go catch up on your blog to find out about this moving business. I sure missed out being gone!

That is the cutest berry! I can see some as embellishments to all sorts of things!

Your "berry" reminds me of a seed pod. Very inventive work!
