Susan: CQJP2014 March Reveal
Here is Seam 73, the last one I did on this block. There may be more I do later, but not until blocks are together, or at least laid out so I know what is going where.
This is Embellishment 28. It's really too open for the rest of the block, but I love it just as it is. I will try to find a block that is more open on its left side to put against this so that it flows more. I really hate to think of adding one single thing to this. Nothing seems right. I'll know when it is.
Finally, I did add some silk ribbon roses. These are French knot centers with stem stitch all around. Above, you can see a couple of other flowers I've added, and I think in that area, I may have to add one more - gotta be odd numbers, ya know. Besides, I'm not completely satisfied with that part.
And the completed block, as of now.
It's been overcast and/or rainy and stormy (and steamy!) every day for the last two weeks, maybe longer. I've been looking for a sunny day to photograph my Flower Fairies top, and it just isn't happening! But the grass is green and stuff is growing, so I guess it isn't all bad.
