Here are the pictures of the new block. First the whole block
and here are the different seams: pink ribbon with feather stitch in red Marlet and beads - I used this to 'hide' an area where the seams underneath were exposed raw edges,
Secondly my first attempt at SRE - just a straight running stitch with a different ribbon woven through - think I should have used a silk ribbon for the running stitch and this was satin (I think)
Next using cross stitch in stranded cotton to hold down a seam I couldn't sew with the maching but did fold under whilst making the original block
And finally, so far, a running chain stitch in the corner where I will sew a spider's web later. I may add some more foliage in green to 'hang' the web from.
So far I am pleased with what I have done but I want to practice some simple SRE flowers to add as well as the web. Got another book from the library today on SRE
