「あかねさす」紫ブロック1 Purple Block 1 almost done

空いているところに刺繍を入れて、このブロックの刺繍部分をほぼ終わらせました。
My stitching on this purple block has been almost done.



前にEmikoさんのRRブロックに刺した蝶を、今度はDMCレーヨンのグレーで飛ばしましたが、プレスンシールという、アメリカやオーストラリアではサランラップのような台所用品を使って、印つけは省略しました。
I've used pressn' seal instead of marking for butterfiles, which are
the same patterns for Emiko's RR block I did before.



実際に見たときはグレーではなく銀色の蝶に見えて、それなりにきれいです。
この蝶の仕上げをふくめて、明日、もう少し全体にビーズやステッチを加えて、最終的な作業をしたいと思います。
I'll add more stitches and beads for finishing touch tomorrow.





Make My Day Award Update…I've been tagged by Ati, Carol and Maureen again. Thank you very much, ladies.

Hideko, I already left a comment once, but can you e-mail the group and explain to me how you use the press-n-seal stuff? Thanks, Debbie

I loved seeing the close-up pictures. I tried making little thready branches today on my lace, as I had seen you do on this one. Probably not as successfully, but I liked the way it worked.
