Ritva's Tea Time Block

This is the block I embellished for Ritva in the Tea Time 2 DYB (Do Your Block) Round Robin at CQI.  In DYBs, each participant in the round robin makes six 6 inch blocks and as they progress around the round robin each person will fully embellish one block for each other stitcher.  So, this is the one I have done for Ritva.  There is a bit of everything in this block I think - two BAS seams (the butterflies and the tete de boef), couched ribbon, buttons, charm, hand dyed lace, trim, silk ribbon flowers and the cross stitch tea cups.

This was a nice little cross stitch pattern I found, originally intended for a bit of stitching on a napkin, and it fit perfectly on this patch when done up with 14 count waste canvas.
