Cream/White CQ - Making Progress!
In the upper left corner, I added a crocheted medallion, created by the Aunt of my Uncle Jake, who was a missionary to Persia probably a hundred years ago. I added beads and a vintage pearl to it.
In the lower left corner, I added a fern frond and a "fiddlehead" in Palestrina Stitch. It's so easy to do and I love the effect!
The lower right corner is the last area to finish. Here I'm adding a branch of apple blossoms and a little bird. The bird is stitched on felt a la Gerry Kreuger. I'll stitch the beak and eye once it is stitched down!
Here are all 4 blocks as they stand right now. I keep debating if I'm going to add a narrow border in-between the blocks or just stitch all 4 blocks directly together. When I look at it this way, I'm thinking the borders might detract from the blocks.
So happy to see this one getting so close to completion!
