Here's my naked December block:
That cool red ribbon with the sparkles and the snowflakes is from Debra.
Thanks Debra! I love the diagonal line the ribbon creates on this block (and it very nicely covers up a jumble of seams ;-D)
I think I shall be adding lots of snowflakes, and maybe a little silver......
some arrowhead stitches along a seam trim
seed beads added to an off-white organic tat
My Jewel Block now looks like this:
She adored my kitchen angel, and I promised to make her one.
fun fur for hair, lace wings, and heart trim

"Tatting Pattern and Designs" by Gun Blomquist and Elwy Persson
there were a couple of design elements I didn't like, and when I got to this point, I needed to add more thread
I rather liked the shape as it was
and decided to start the pattern again......
the swarovski crystals add a nice sparkle, although it's difficult to see......
sorry about the blurring on this scan
the center is filled with a circle of faux pearls matching those at each arm
I added a swarovski crystal drop to the bottom, too
it needs blocking, but I'm pleased with the result
There's been more stitching, but no pics yet
Hope you've had a wonderful week.
The weather has warmed up, the snow is gone, and the ice is receding on the lake
Maybe we'll have sunshine. Hope you do, too!
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz
