I'm still working my way through the Round Robin blocks...and have so enjoyed stitching on Janie's. Anyone with the initials JJ has to have a monogram on her block..and it was fun to do. It took a little time, but I used a simple one from my book...so it was not hard...just back-stitches. I decided not to touch the center square because the dragonfly was already so pretty...so kept all of the seam work towards the opposite side of the seam instead.
These Letters should conclude the set of Wednesday Wine Country Monograms. Of course, let me know if you are missing one...so I can republish that one (or publish it if I missed it)...but, I have them all checked off.
My dear friend Colleen, used some very interesting fabric in her block. They did not speak to my muse at all...and I really struggled with them. For some reason, just kept thinking of cotton dishtowels...and that is not very inspiring. So, finally...decided to concentrate on stitching some pretty seams and added a bit of lace. Generally, I'm pretty happy with the final look and think that it would make a really pretty photo book cover. So, the muse will just have to get over it! Hugs!
Andrea's block was fun, and a challenge...because I decided to try out a little stumpwork dragonfly. He is my first attempt at wired wings...and I'm still not sure if I like him...so, am sending along a silk ribbon bow to replace him if Andrea's just wants to yank him off the block.
All of this rain has my head stopped up...and I'm wanting a nap! But, instead I decided to try to stitch a little, and so glad that I did! I loved working on Jeanne's block...and am going to have a hard time sending it home!
The center rose fabric is dress quality and I'd love to have owned yards of it because it is so pretty!
