SQUARE 6






Here are the pics for square 6. In pic 2 you will see a real feather sitting with the embroidered and beaded one. It is not permanent - I just laid it there to see what I thought of putting it there. I have a couple and maybe a smaller one will be better. I will do a lot of tweaking when all the squares are done and the sashing sewn to them.I have a lot of little pins, etc. that I will add on where I see I can use them. The good part of posting them on the computer is I get to see them also and can then see what looks good and what does not in my mind.

MaryAnne of MagpiesMumblings asked me if the butterfly sitting on the rose was a pin. It is a button with a shank on the back. I actually sewed it down because I knew I wanted it there. It was too small to sit alone but good I thought on the rose.

So gorgeous! I love the little spotted feather with it.

I just love the colours you have used! And how you've put it together. I like the spotted feather, too--- a wee touch of whimsy, perhaps? To me, it speaks thus.

Freda, your blocks are just lovely. I hope you will bring some of your work to the retreat!

There are so many areas of this block that I like. I love the crocheted butterfly and the dragonfly charm too. The feathers (real and otherwise) are perfect!

I love this block, the blue crocheted butterfly is so pretty, I have one just like it only purple. I'm saving it for something special. Your beading is gorgeous. And I love the feather. It looks perfect. I so enjoy looking at your work.
Hugs, Pat
