Final touches and a tip shared...

The end is in sight and in the final days it looks like it is going to be a bit unbalanced... too heavy on the right side but I can live with it... Something not planned was outlining the lace with gold (lower left) but I think it needs it.  Tried several gold threads and chose a Krienk very fine.  I've just done a few stitches and it barely shows up in the photo but is just right..

I started the lavender bunch on the right and I wanted you to see the cording I'm using for stems...it is one of my very favorites...and you probably couldn't guess unless you touched (or pulled) it.  It is ordinary elastic cord from the sewing notions..  It is extremely easy to manipulate, doesn't unravel and dyes like a dream...

I've decided the March block is going to be fuchsias and hummingbirds.  My aunt is in the hospital and I'm taking my mom to visit her tomorrow and will have a couple hours waiting so am saving all the silk ribbon french knots on the lavender to do then...

Another spectacular block. My favourite bit is the filling stitch on the patch under the large butterfly. And of course, the swallow button. I can sit and look at your blocks for hours and still see new things. And thanks for the elastic tip.
