ブロック交換:スージー A Block for Susie

This is my swap block for Susie, UK. She would like pink, cream and green one. First I picked up fabrics and a print.

Here's the approximate composition.

After a few stitches.

I've finished like this. It's not so easy to handle the colours. I might not be a pink person.

最後のアールデコ・ハート My Last Art Deco Heart

This is one of several naked art deco hearts I pieced last year. I've embellished this last one for my friend in Australia. It looks so lonely and wintery.

I've finished like this. Australia is in the Southern Hemisphere. The season is now towards autumn and winter there. It's not so much out of time, isn't it?

黒のDYBラウンドロビン Jewels on Black DYB/ Susan's Block

DYBは普通のラウンドロビンとは違い、6枚ある15cm 角のブロックの1枚を一人で仕上げます。最初はアメリカのスーザンのものです。私が選んだ飾る前のブロックです。
Here's the naked block of Susan's for Jewels on Black DYB.

After basic seam treatments.


I might add something a bit more.

黒のラウンドロビン3  Black RR/ Sossity's Block

The third block of Jewels on Black RR is Sossity's. First I did two seams (the under longest seam and the left of butterfly piece), put some white flower beads on bottom right.

But it looked so boring I felt like adding some moving element; wind or trail of butterfly. So I made a ribbon trail with grey georgette ribbon.

Here's the whole block after me.

マリアから届いたブックカバー A Bookcover from Maria


Yesterday I received my bookcover from Maria Vialle in Tasmania. It was made in my favorite blue, used so pretty girl prints, and simply stitched with white thread. Very lovely!! Thank you very much for your hard work, Maria. I love and treasure it very much.
