I'm really enjoying working on this block...whether it's because the photo is in colour or it could be that I am looking at the kids as I work ..Proud Mum, Nana thing!
Last night, I added the deep burgundy Melanie roses to the cream vintage lace at the top right and I just love how they have turned out, and I think that piece of lace looks lovely and very Victorian.
I thought the lace motif needed a bit more to it, so I added some pink SRE french knots trailing out from the big Melanie roses and around the photo.
While I still had time last night, I added the curved feather stitch and embellished it with SRE rose buds, and I stitched down the leaves on the narrow lace on the top left with detached chain stitch, later on I will add some beads or Fargo roses to that lace..
Well, I seem to have struck a happy balance, I have been working on my Dear Jane blocks during the day when I have time, and working on my CQ in the evening...as my son Laurie always says " All's Good"...
