First Purple Block finished

昨日までの作業に少し足して、やっと一枚目の紫のブロックが終わりました。
Finally I've finished my first Purple block.

右上のモチーフです。
The motif on upper right corner.


蝶にも仕上げのステッチを足し、リボン刺繍の辺りはこういう仕上がりです。
I've added finishing stitches to the butterflies.




ブロックの全体です。
Here's the finished whole block.




インスピレーションの元は、紫ということで、額田王の歌、「あかねさす紫野行き標野行き野守りは見ずや君が袖振る」ですが、そう見えなくても気にしないで下さい。

What a beautiful, balanced block it is, and such a pleasure to see all the different things you did. I always like the way you combine the beads, threads and silk ribbon. It never looks too busy.

Lovely block Hideko, what are you going to do with it? Is it a part from a quilt or will you frame it separate?

How beautiful! I just love that fan. And those lazy daisy pink/purple flowers in the corner. Your work is always exquisite.

布の接ぎ合わせ部分の種々のステッチに、ほれぼれ~といたします。
最近、ミシンの力で、ステッチを掛けている作品をあちこちで見かけますが、仕上げた時の満足感、充足感は、まったくちがうものでしょうね。英子さんの手の中には、いくつくらい、ステッチが納まっているのでしょう?
