Hot Pink Peacock Additions

Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
I did some more stitching on this block last night. More beads, more sequins and the spider web and spider. I so much enjoyed doing the web and spider on my mom's CQ piece that I decided I wanted to do another one on this block! The web is worked with Kreinik metallic #4 braid. I don't remember the color # but it's silver and blue, very sparkly. It's couched on with the same thread. The spider is worked with 2 beads and DMC black floss for his little legs.

I also added 4 Swarovski crystals to the daisy row near the spider web. I had no idea that Swarovski crystals came in opaque colors until I bought a pack of 144 misc. colors from Fire Mountain Gems & Beads.

There's more some more stitching to be done so check back for an update tomorrow.
