Adding to a block returned home.....

This little 6" block was stitched for me by Cathy LaBath in a "Seams Only" RR last winter.. Cathy's seams sorta morphed into motifs..and I love them. By the very nature of the RR there were some open areas in the bottom patches....  I have something special planned for this piece and wanted those areas filled in with some surface texture... more encrusted...



I chose to use what Cathy had done and just add more of it to fill in...  I matched the thread the best I could and am happy with the result. 

I had planned to add motifs to the other blocks in that RR  and use them on a jacket but it's not going to happen so I think I will add some of the "Girls with Dolls" images and some lace and combine them with the ones that will be coming home soon...
