This is Carolyn's extra block in the Pansy round robin I am in at CQI. I got to pick which block would be the shared one so I chose this beautiful pink one. Since there will be five of us stitching on this little six inch block, each of us will only get to do a little. I did the feather stitch seam. The detached chain stitches are done in a tatting thread. I couldn't resist using it since it was a pink to green variegation. It was actually quite nice to embroider with.
I also did the button trail. First of all, I decoupaged the pansy picture onto a mother of pearl button. At the top is a silk ball button and I used Adirondack dye (Willow) to dye it to work with the greens in the block. The little shell button next to it was also dyed with a rose colour of Adirondack. Other than that, just the usual assortment of buttons, beads and charms. I'll be sending Carolyn 's blocks off in the mail in a day or so.
