And of course, Elly's site
|Pastoral Peacock (Design by Elly Sienkiewicz)|
The Peacock's eye is embroidered. Now I need to do the same to the leaves and the rose buds. Definitely, need some rose moss here and there.
|Grape Wreath is the block I am currently stitching (Design by Elly Sienkiewicz)|
|You can see I am Back Basting each grape with a little bit of batting in each one!|
Ruched Rose Wreath is my most finished block. Elly did all the ink work on the block for me in a class in 2010. I still have to go over it to darken a few areas and then heat set it.
|Bottom rose is ruched velvet ribbon.|
|Victorian Vase (Design by Elly Sienkiewicz). Missing all the flowers and the leaves.|
|Victorian Vase Rosebud. I just love the polka dot batik fabric!|
|Urn with Stuffed Roses (Design by Elly Sienkiewicz)|
|Center, where pin is, is waiting for a vignette!|
Rosebuds are crying for some moss. This is a great spot to use fancy fabrics that you don't have to needle turn.
Woven Basket with Roses (Design by Elly Sienkiewicz) that is missing the weaving on the basket front and the roses. The rose buds are the bottom layer of reverse applique. Notice I used hand-dyed velvet.
|Roses and Acorns|
This block is not finished because I cannot decide how to make the flowers. The pieces of ribbon are informally pinned on the block so that I can decide on color, texture, etc.
Until next time,
