This week I had the pleasure of working on Ritva's Flower Fairy blocks. I chose the Rose Fairy to work on. I added a little ribbon skirt, and enhanced her wings a bit, I also added some fine curly yarn for her hair and couched that down and featherstitched over it.
I added the beaded seam and the hand-dyed dragonfly and the reddish looking lace above.
I also added a spray of rosebuds.
This is the whole block I am sending off.

How Do You Like My New Look?
I have been thinking for a long time I needed to redo my blog, but have had no time, or a chance to do it. Recently I was looking into options and was looking into free blog backgrounds, etc, and came across Shel's Scraps and found out she would also design headers and backgrounds. When I saw her work, I asked her to design a new header and background for me. She finished it today, and I couldn't be happier. She even set it up for me. I have added her blinkie to my side bar. I highly recommend her work!

Autumn RR, Rita's Block
The past week I have been working on Rita's Autumn RR. I was the last person to stitch on this block and it was a pleasure. The ladies who had worked on it before me had done such wonderful work. I first added the orange/gold piece of hand-dyed lace. Next I worked on the
acorns using Marie A. Frietas' book called the Art of Dimension Embroidery, recommended by
Next I added some of my hand-dyed leaves. I also did the stitching right beside that, I followed the pattern on the fabric and accented the trailing leaves in thread.
This is the whole block, and it is being shipped off to Rita today.
