This is the second block I have worked on, in the Southern Cross Crazies Round Robin. The theme is ‘Garden’.
I added the lowest seam of long tailed Fly stitch with DMC green thread and Sassa Lynne variegated Straight stitches and Detached Chain leaves
A group of roses, Fuchsias, Forget-me-nots and Lavender.
Next to these is a silk ribbon rose vine. The stem is Whipped Chain -DMC thread and Fly stitch leaves.
A dragonfly. A row of DMC half daisies and another vine of Delica beaded wisteria. The stems were Whipped Stem stitch and the leaves Detached Chain both using DMC threads.
Jean added the 2 seams and the little shrub and flowers. The French knots are lovely.
In the top corner Jean added some stars to the sky.
