So the block above was my entry for the comfort zone block.. This block is actually not quite finished as I had wanted to do more in the bottom left section and ran out of time... The silk picture on the block is of my mother when she was about 16..... If you look closely you can see that her bangs have been curled in the shape of a heart... That was "the thing" then....
One of my CQ groups challenged members to do two pieces ....one within your comfort zone and one out of your comfort zone... Having signed up I had to really define my comfort zone....what do I love to do so much that I can sit hour after hour with needle in hand... So here's what I came up with:
1. Soft muted colors
2. Lace....lots and lots of lace.
3. Silk ribbon embroidery
4. Traditional embroidery
5. Beads, buttons and charms...all the bits that embellish.....
6. Victorian and very heavily embellished work
7. Lots of motifs
If you notice "seam treatments" did not make my comfort list..... I'll post my "out of my comfort zone" block tomorrow......
