Joma's block

Apologies to Jo and Diane......I must have been more tired than I thought last evening,as I've only just realised that I posted Jo's pics of Joma's block to KenMaursCorner instead of here.

The rectangular block is the entire block;the larger square pic is a close-up of the stitching that Jo added.
I think Jo said that Tuesday would see it on its way to the next member. Posted by Picasa

Earth to Sea/Water

With Sharon declaring this block to be "Earth to Sea/water,
I was a little worried that previous members had neglected the "earth" aspect,and have been wondering how to balance this defect.
In the end I opted for a Mangrove bush/tree as it has its roots in both worlds!
The tree trunk and branches were worked in chain and stem stitch with Marlitt rayon thread with silk ribbon for leaves.A few small shells were added .......sorry I didnt have any small enough oyster shells for the trunk. Posted by Picasa

Sharon's Pink 'n yellow block

This is the block that Sharon said she would like to see embellished to "within an inch of its life"!
Not normally colours I choose to work with,the shades of red in two patches reminded me of a good red wine,so using Edmar rayon threads in Lola and Frost weights I attempted to add a bunch of (red)grapes.
I still can't decide whether it needs more......... Posted by Picasa

Joma's block

For "beta or worse",Jo's words not mine I recommend that you use the Link and visit Jo's Blog if you want to view the current state of Joma's block.

Apparently beta and "old" blogs are incompatible.

Just maybe in the New Year when I'm not so pressured I'll tackle changing the formats of CQCrazy and KenMaursCorner.
In the meantime: sorry all but you'll have to do some cyber travelling yourselves.

If/when Jo emails me pics of Joma's blocks I'll add them for your gratification.
