This is what I have done on Margaret's block.. I have outlined the pot by couching down a fine gold cord with gold thread, and added the cherub charm on the pot. I filled the pot up with SRE.. stem stitch roses, spider web roses, rose buds, and loop flowers. I softened it all by adding feather stitch fern and bullion lavender sprig.. Margaret requested we embroider our first name on her blocks... So I did embroidered my name in stem stitch and embellished the J with French knot flowers and tiny detached chain stitch leaves..
