Wednesday, September 13
I've finally started embellishing the gathering blocks...
I looked at this particular block and a thought..."Yes, I know who will get this one"....and that was all I needed to inspire me as to what I would do on this block.
I've said it so many times before, but black is so lovely to work on.
Especially with a bit of velvet and gold sparkle on it.
The gold braid I used here looks a bit dull, but it is a lovely old vintage gold colour and adds a bit of old world charm to the block...It is the third one down in my market buys from last Sunday.
With the pansy print in the centre, I thought I would make this block all up in Pansies, and stick to the colours of the print.
Still quite a bit more to do on this block, but I hope to have it done today.
Gotta go..meeting my embroidery friends today..
