Basically Beaded DYOB - my work on Susan's blocks


Well I have been busy stitching, and so I have finished another Basically Beaded block.  Susan's blocks were an array of stunning colours like Carol's, so choosing again was hard, but I finally decided on the blues.
Here are all her naked blocks, the green one had already been stitched, so that left the two purples, a red, yellow and the blue one.

Here is my work on her blue block.
Followed by close ups of the main elements, first the button trail.

Next was a requested beetle, he turned out wonderfully, very happy with him.

 He has a variegated body, with detached buttonhole stitched wings, with added beads and sequins.

I hope Susan likes my block, I won't be sending it on until after the weekend as I want to show it off to a class I have on the weekend in Airlie Beach.
