Following Leslie

I didn't want to copy Leslie but she certainly inspired me. I wanted to challenge myself by creating a competely different approach. This block is a beading exercise gone crazy. I had painted the cottage button for Jo and wanted to put it on her fan surrounded by a FEW beads and then do the neutral cottage on the background. I added a few rows of beads around the button and then a few more, and then a few more until I ran out of fan.
The MOP cottage button is only about 1 1/4" so you can see this fan is quite small. It's different than anything I've done. Do you like it?
