Well-traveled Block.....




Lisa's encrusted block took an exceptionally long time to get here and then I got right on a plane with it. The airline stewardesses love it... Except for the lace arbor all the work was done either in planes or airports.... 3 planes coming and going.... In fact I took the very last stitch on the very last bee just as the plane landed in Spokane. (a total of 20 hours in planes and airports)
This morning I beaded and added the rose button... Usually I bead the rose buttons with either pink, gold or pearl. This was the first time with green and I kinda like it..
Instead of color, I uses the daisies to move the eye from the lower right up to the upper right and the bees to keep it moving across... Lisa has two bunnies to boot!!!! It's off to Ritva in Finland tomorrow...just a tad late...

A wonderful feeling just to look at this one...I too like the green surrounding the rose button and the skep and the bees...but, my absolute fave is the bunny munching on daisies...you do such a great job of introducing whimsy into your pieces. It's probably because you get so much enjoyment from the animal life that surrounds you...like Morris chewing his paper bowl...classic!
