Jo's blocks

 

So, I have had a play with Jo's rectangular block:
First I stitched a cretan stitch with two strands of purple Rayon thread;then I laced an orange silk ribbon through the stitches and added purple seed beads to tips of cretan stitches.
I used a silver and pearl Shisha as a flower and back stitched stems with shell as leaves.

I also added a fine braid around the top of the fan and anchored it with purple seed beads in the centre of the braid.

Another two blocks ready to head off top Becky! Posted by Picasa

I love the colours here and the stitching fits in so well. I can see why you are so pleased Jo.
