Butterfly Block Update

Butterfly Block3
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
I think I forgot to tell you what fabrics I used on this block. The dark blue is crushed velvet, the grey is taffeta, the pink and the light blue are silks and the print in the center is cotton.

I didn't have alot of stitching time yesterday. I added the silver braid and covered the seam to the bottom right of the butterfly. I used 3 strands of a Needle Necessity hand dyed floss for the feather stitching. The french knots are made using some DMC #3 Perle Cotton that I hand dyed myself. That #3 makes really nice french knots! The white lace is vintage. It was in a shoebox full of vintage lace and crocheted piecses that I found at a flea market back in May. The pink ribbon has metallic gold on it. I'll be sewing that down today.
