Suz--- Some More Stitching

Hi everyone. I've gotten a little more stitching done, and finished my November block with a simple seam treatment above the roses


I'm sorry I forgot to take a photo of December all naked, but I got carried away..........


some of this beautiful beady trim was added
 as well as a crocheted butterfly from an old doily


and a bit of  pink and white curlicue trim
more lace, tea-dyed


and beads
along with a lace piece from a friend's wedding gown and broderie anglais, December is almost finished!


That will give me some time to join my blocks together, and finish the wall hanging, hopefully before Christmas











I've finished piece #9 of my wrapping cloth! by adding a tatted seam treatment and a cascade of french knots. Yay! On to #10!

the blue StitchMAP piece ought to have been on it's way before now. I'd added some buttonhole lace around the outside, but, when I started the third row, it was evident that my stitches were not perfectly uniform..........frogging ensued......and then I thought I'd like to add a tatted border. It's taking longer than I'd hoped......
 
 

just a simple chain........

hoping I have better results with the tatting........









uh, knitting? what knitting?  lol

it's coming along slowly, and I'm almost halfway there......

Wishing everyone who celebrates a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Hope you've had some time for stitching. Thanks for looking.
Hugs from Suz

That's a lot of variety you worked on this month, Suz! I love the laces you've been using. I look forward to seeing all the blocks together. I'm not doing well at picturing them that way in my mind.

It all looks lovely. I especially like the pearls interlaced with the trim.

A great finish on November block. Love the doily butterfly on December block. It looks like its body is needle woven.
Puffs, pockets and pretty things abide on your wrapping cloth. I love them all.
