Another RR Block

Yes I've finished my embellishing on another RR block within the SewBuds group.  This one belongs to Janie J and it's been sitting here since June 20th awaiting mailing - can't because Canada Post was on rotating strike then workers locked out period!  Darned irritating all around!  But I hear it should be over tomorrow and soon it should be "back to work"!!!
This block is from a previous round robin but not completed so Janie has sent it around in our March 2011 RR to hopefully have it totally embellished before coming home this time.

So I used one of Janie's tatted purple trims she included for all of us (I didn't take one as I myself tat so left them for others to enjoy) and stitched it ontop of the lace trim previously added to the block.  I then added a trio of multi-coloured beads anchoring each of the rings in place.

Then I decided it needed some more yellow to balance out the block and possibly dress up the grey/green triangular patch.  So I tatted up a dragonfly and anchored it in place with pearls.

So here is the whole block, all packaged up and hopefully on it's way to Candi this week.
