Good Luck Block Day 4


Good Luck Block Day 4
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
My Good Luck block is coming along nicely. I added flowers and beads to the curly vine and then did some lazy daisy stitches for leaves filling the inside of them with tiny gold seed beads.

I also covered the seam at the top right with fan stitches and beads. I used waste canvas to keep my stitches perfectly spaced. I do my feather stitches that way too.

I can see that the top left needs some white as does the bottom right. I also need to decide where to put my signature.

I'm keeping this one on the light and airy side as the crocheted shamrock will be more delicate than the applique I did on the valentine block. I don't want to overpower the shamrock with heavy seam treatments but I do like alot of embellishments on my blocks.

Stay tuned for further updates.
