More birds, more eye candy...

This is another block from the "encrusted RR" group I posted about the day before yesterday... This is Maire's block as it started out with a patch of delicate forget-me-nots in the center.

I was third in the rotation when I received the block and the color scheme has been established... Ati had added the lovely yellow roses upper left... and I followed with yellow organza roses...I don't often use the organza ribbons but when they're right, they're great...

Isn't that little row of pearl buttons across the center absolutely precious.. I believe Ati added them... Cobi did the yellow pussy willows.

I commenced to work on the lower right half with some love birds and a little poem..Some how forget-me-nots needed lovebirds..

Again the birds were done on felt and appliqued on on the block (and stuffed slightly) I really don't intend it, but I do rather get heavy handed on a block.... a drama queen of sorts. Can't help it though... I will be ready to jump back into RRs by fall...





Leslie followed me and finished the block in grand style. Just in case you hadn't noticed...there are very strong directional elements in this block which carry the eye... Start at the branch lower right, follow up the pussy willows into Ati's roses and Leslie used her yellow roses to bring the eye right on around... And what a treat to have yellow roses... We forget roses come in colors besides pink, pink, pink...
What I thought was so special about this team of stitchers is that we all had a very different style but we all worked in harmony. I just love it when that happens..

Those gorgeous doves have to be my favorite of all the things you've done! Just love them! (The bunnies you did for me are a very close second!) Love seeing this again!
