The last weeks I have been working on Darlene's block and it is on it's way home now!
This is how it looked before I started working on it. There is a bit of difference in the colors of both blocks I show you, because one is taken in the evening and the other one by daylight.......
I tried to bring more harmony in the block by adding more pink, purple and black to the block. I added the crocheted flowers, the MOP buttons, the lace in the upper right corner, the boot next to Moulin Rouge, the word Paris and the tatted lace next to it.
Also I added the crocheted salmon pink colored flower to the flower spray to repeat the color of the small roses above the lady charm. I embroidered several seams, decorated the corset and added the Arc the Triomph and butterfly charm at last.
I hope Darlene likes my work!
Kathy is now working on mine, she is really encrusting it,
can't wait to see it back home.
Have a look at her website to see what she has done so far!
