Gathering Block # 7...
Here is Gathering Block # 7...
I don't know why but the colours of this block did not scan true to colour.
In real life the blue seen here is really a Jade green silk, just like the green in the print...that's why I picked to use it.
Anyway, the colours are a soft peach, silver grey and a jade green, a little different to what I usually like to work with.
I needle tatted the beaded motif, ( I'm still trying to shuttle tat), and I tea dyed the lace bird motif.
I thought this print was so pretty and it was nice to work on something different from the Victorian colours that I love to work on.
I'm now working on block # 8.....Slowly getting them done.
You can see all the gathering blocks here on my flickr.
