"Side right" finished and problem block!
The very last thing I added last night was the row of bugle beads on the ribbon below the men.. It accentuated their rigidity and made me smile.
Just Sunday there was an historic bit in the paper on this issue. Men were quoted as saying if woman were allowed to vote men didn't have to be chivalrous.
First there just weren't enough opportunities for fancy seams as on the other blocks. I also need to remove that delicate tiny rose lace on the left and the stitching below it.
Second the black lace on the lower block encroached too far into the lighter section and was out of sync with the rest of the blocks..
