All That Jazz Complete


All That Jazz Complete
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
My All That Jazz block is now complete!

I added some more of the little music buttons to the top, I embellished the braid underneath the buttons with some Czech glass fire polished beads and some glass bugle beads.

The Victorians believed that it was good luck if they had a spider in their house and since the south needs alot of luck with clean up and rebuilding, I decided to add a spider to my block. The web is worked with gold Kreinik #4 braid, the spider body is made of 2 glass beads and I did the legs with DMC #5 Perle Cotton.

I'm going to look at this for a few days to make sure it doesn't need anything else and then I'll pack it off and ship it to Sharon in Australia.

Congratulations on finishing this block Pam - I remember how unsure you were right at the beginning. Well, it was worth waiting for as far as your blog readers are concerned! I love the way you used the little instruments along the wavy music lines too.
