More Additions To The Pink Peacock Block

I did stitch on this yesterday, honestly! The obvious addition is the rose vine in the patch next to the tatting. The roses are not done with the Bullion Stitch but rather are what I call "chunky french knots". The FN's are worked with 3 strands of Needle Necessities overdyed floss and wrapped 6 times. It makes for a very 3 dimensional looking flower. It takes some patience as it's challenging to get the knots to lay nicely but I really like the effect.

I also worked on my vintage style apron. Now I want to make more! But I must finish this one first!

Yep - thse aprons could be seriously addictive. I am making myself stick to the one a month! But even before this craze I was fascinated by aprons as a canvas women have used in the past, when there was much less disposable income for framing art works.

Cannot wait for next month's theme.

Linda, yes aprons could be seriously addictive! I was looking at some patterns when I was up town today and I think I just may need to have one or two!
