...Crazy Quilt Journal Project.. - ..My July Block...
I am very happy to have the seventh block finished.
And here are some of the highlights from this block.
Silk Ribbon embroidered flowers with leaves and beads.
A Mandala Motif .
Detached Chains with a French Knot to anchor it. Pistil Stitch (purple).
Chains have been added to my 'flower pots' from last week.
Tubular petals for this half flower.
I added beads to this oyster stitch seam from last week.
Love this simple seam.
The blue is Buttonhole bars and then added the white beads.
A very small amount of Algerian Eye stitch.
This is the TAST stitch for this week, and I shall have to play some more with it on my August block as I haven't really done it justice this week, but I still like this little 'starburst' shown here.
And not forgetting my butterfly of the month in the central patch.
And here are some extra eye-candy views to show the texture at different angles.
Well, that was quite a lot of work for the month.
Seven blocks down.....five to go.
Slowly getting there.
