The Last Block of Tradewinds DYB

恒風DYBの最後はシェリルのブロックにEmikoさんとの共同作業でした。
This last work for Cheryl's block of Tradewinds DYB was a colaboration with Emiko.


まずEmikoさんがこういうふうに飾り、私のところに送ってきました。
Emiko has done like this.

DYBの名前にちなんで、「風」を感じる飾りつけにしようと思ってまずやってみたのですが、いくら「風」でも、全部飛んでいきそうに軽い感じです。
I meant to blow wind on the block. But my stitching is so light everything would be blown away.

少し足してみましたがやはり軽さは解消されません。
I've added a bit but still it looks too light.


最終的にはEmikoさんのリボン刺繍のバラと対に、私もリボン刺繍を足してみました。これで十分かどうかは不安ですが、一応完成です。
Though I am not sure if my SRE has balanced the whole weight, I feel finished now.

You and Emiko work well together. Each of you has complimented the other's work. I love the little white flowers in the bottom right corner.

What a beautiful block. I also like the white flowers swaying in the wind, and I would love to feel that cool wind that you stitched blowing through my hair.

Thank you very much for all of your kind words. Maggie, I will stay in Buckingham in Buckinghamshire, very close to the border between Oxfordshire, and will visit around Bicester.

It is a lovely area, you will really enjoy it. In typical english fashion..... I hope the weather is good for your visit :>)
My father came from Oxford, so I know the that part of the country well.

Best wishes
