Round Robin update - Diane's Stumpwork block

G'day All,

Well only two round robins now, which is giving me more time to finish of some of my other projects now, will post about that soon, but first here is the info on my currently round robins.
First of all, Diane's Stumpwork block, the colours of her block gave me the idea of a vase of Hydrangeas, the are made of seven slips of colonial knots, they took me two whole days to make, and that was just the knots. The actual putting of the piece together took another 4 hours.
Here's a photo of the whole block, my work is the bottom right hand corner.
And here is a close up of my vase

close up of the vase, it's made of shiny stamped kid leather.

And a close up of the gather flower and seam

I didn't do any more as there would not be much space left for Karrin to work.
Only one more block to go, then they'll all be home.

Hi Arlene, this is my first visit to your blog. I can't imagine why I haven't been here before. Your work is so beautiful and I just love what you have added to my stumpwork block. It's not home yet, but I know it will be one of my favourite RR blocks.
