                  Je t'aime Paris Round Robin
Today I want to show you pictures of Cathy's beautiful block that I have been working on. The block has a lot of round curves and looked already beautiful without it's decoration. Theresa and Kathy did some awesome stitching before me. I love the way they used all these little flower beads on it, it's a pity such things are not available in the shops over here.....
When seeing this block I immediately knew that I -once again- had to stitch an Eifel Tower. The spot on the lower left corner was just perfect for it! After that I added the sheaf stitches in dark purple with little white pearls to balance the dark purple in the block. Than I made the cream cretan stitch and extended it with lilac lazy daisies. At last I added the spray of spiderweb roses in lilac River Silk above the Eifel Tower, made some leaves of fly stitches and silk ribbon and the little seam treatment with the double buttonholestitch in creme above them. Think Cathy will love this block!
