Southern Cross Crazies – round robin

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFive of us are working on 12″ blocks.  This is my work on Jean’s block

A hand dyed butterfly motif with beads.   Green braid and tiny flower buttons.  Below this I added a spider and web.  The seam was made with Fly stitch and Detached chain leaves.

I made Blackberries of French Knots and a few Mill Hill Delica beads to highlight them and the flowers were Long and Short stitched. with one plain pink DMC and one variegated CGT

I stitched the flowers on a felt shape by Buttonholing the edge then working the L/S stitches back into this- leaving a thicker edging.  Stems of Rope stitch

I used Cottage Garden Threads for all the variegated embroideries.   and lastly Chain stitched seam,  Straight and Fly stitches with sequins and yellow beads completed the work.
