Traditional Floral Round Robin

While we were in New Zealand recently I took some of my crazy patchwork round robin stitching with me.  Here is my work on Paula's block, which will be winging it's way home in the next day or so.
This first photo is of the block before my work.
 As you can see there was not a lot of space left for me to work on....
Now the next photo is the block after my work...... I added the fan in the top right and the floral lace and floral seam bottom right.
 Close up of the fan; I hand dyed it and added the sequins, beads and ribbon Fargo roses.
 This next photo is close up of the lace motif, with Cretan seam with small straight stitch flowers and ribbon roses.  The lace motif i also hand dyed and added pearl coloured beads.
