So here is what I started off with:
|Debbies block - after Paula and PeggySue|
First I pinned on a hand dyed green leaf lace and then found in a swap packet the crocheted mauve flower and stitched those in place. In the mean time I tatted up a variegated purple/white heart for another patch. I then found my variegated DMC floss and stem stitched the curly qs and added the maulve beads at the ends. Also found my hand dyed floss and fly stitched ferns too.

Then I decided that tiny triangular piece with the fabric folds needed a fancy button cluster – hope that’s not too heavy for your piece. If yes, feel free to remove the stitches from the back and replace it with whatever you desire.

Now the tatted heart patch … this heart was completed shortly after receipt of the block, then this weekend I did the seam treatments and added the Colonial knots in the background. I was going to add my tatted or charm butterfly in this patch too but could not decide so I will be including it in with the block and Cathy/Debbie can decide!

And here without further do ... is the just about completed block of Debbie's! I just love it and already can see it gracing her guest room wall in an impressive wall hanging! You'll have to anchor it to the wall just in case it is packed by the guests???

Just Cathy L to embellish yet.
