Round Robin Progress

I have finally finished my work on two blocks for Kathy Shaw. Kathy was so
kind to allow me to hold them longer so that I could get others work out of the
way before I completed hers. Unfortunately there wasn't a lot of room on either
block for me to work with, so I did two motifs for her.

For the Butterflies and Dragonflies, I created a silver and goldwork butterfly
based on her own design.

I added several buttonhole butterflies in some of the
spaces and butterfly buttons beneath my motif. There was no more room really to
do any seams.

For the Lace and pearls one, again there were only smallish seams left and only
one place for a motif. So I added lace butterflies here and there and added
twilled ribbon and pearls onto of a lace motif in the corner. Two seams near the
basket of flowers.

I've also been working on some blocks for Southern Cross Crazies, my Xmas cracker swap block and our current round robin.
This is the Christmas cracker block, still to embellish, with silver, blue and white, and a silver beetle.

And this is my block for the RR, we get to choose our own theme, so I chose Christmas. in the silvers, white and blues.

And lastly the first part of my stocking for Lyn's Stocking swap.

Arlene, The two blocks are just beautiful. The silver and gold work is lovely also the motifs and butterflies.
Hope you enjoyed a great World Scout Day .
