playing with needles, fibers, and fabrics

I’ve finished embellishing Renee’s block. Here’s what it looked like when I got it:

The fabrics in this block are so pretty that I decided to go with fairly simple embellishments. I used buttonhole stitch, laced buttonhole stitch, feather stitch, herringbone stitch, and side by side fly stitches, mostly in gold thread. Unfortunately, the gold doesn’t really show up well in the photo. In any case, this block will go out in tomorrow’s mail.
