Christmas Block Day 6


Christmas Block Day 6
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
This block seems to be flowing a little easier now.

I added some gold beads to the antique lace piece at the top. Then some gold braid to the antique lace on the right along with some tiny rosebud appliques. I did a feather stitch on the left seam, tatted some tiny rings without picots and sewed those on and then beaded that.

I also added the little Christmas piece. This was an earring that I bought at a flea market over the Summer. I took the clip off of the back so that it would lay flat and sewed it down.

I mentioned yesterday that I was thinking of hand coloring the poinsettia with oil pastels but Kay Susan suggested that it was fine the way it was, that it was a perfect focal point so I think I'll take her advice and let it be. I do want to add some little pine branches or curly q's but I want to finish embellishing the seams first before I do that.

This Christmas Block is simply stunning! And I agree about leaving the center poinsettia cream color. It MAKES the block, by the way. I also agree it could use some type of greenery but his block sure doesn't need much more!I've been watching your progress and am green with envy. I wish I had the time to start something Christmas-y; I've too much on my plate right now!

I agree,
Perfect as is!
I think the cream poinsettia is the focal point of the block and is very Christmas.
I love it!
