As for Joyce’s blocks here are pics of what I’ve added to previous member’s embellishments on these blocks - she asked for my cretan trees and I've also added in a cretan stitched jelly fish:
Dark blue velvet patch - slanted blanket stitched snowflake in metallic white with bead in centre, detached chain at tips.
Between trio of detached chains I added blanket stitched designs in ice blue or grey rayon.
Base stitch in trio of Ecru DMC floss, overstitched in Petite Very Velvet V673, overstitched with Watercolours Perle Henysuckle then added finishing stitches in a Perle.
|Added diamond shaped designs between previous stitcher's seam of rosettes.|
On red fuzzy patch added a double HB in black floss and overcast in gold JBT, then in every second open centre with a design from the one side gold Xs.
On lace edge at tip a curved feather stitch and beads in centres.
|In irridescent DMC floss feather base with alternating fly stitched pine needles.|
|Added white cretan trees in irridescent white.|
|Added base in Holbein in white BJT and in white floss filler stitches.|
|Varied uniform fly stitches with detached chain and French knots.|
|In coral BJT couched staight stitched decoration.|
|Added new seam of chain stitched metallic and fly stitched scrolls branching off in DMC irridescent touquise.|
Now I'm working on Pam’s set of blocks and I got word that my blocks are at the last member and when finished will be coming home – WOW!!!
