I decided the third (and last) motif on the block would be a paisley which I thought tied in well with the peacock theme. I started by couching down a double row of Japan gold-ish thread around the paisley shape. I added a fan shape of bugle and seed beads at the fat end of the paisley and some more seed beads leading from there back to the small end. I filled in the small paisley shape inside the big one with satin stitch in metallic thread and then added three feather charms and a sequin flower (remember these from last week's BAS?) The finishing touch was the sequins around the outside. I decided I wanted a scalloped edge around the outside so I used sequin trim and cut one third off each sequin on the trim before I stitched them down so they would snug up nicely to the Japan gold (yes, I was getting a little obsessive at this point! lol) For the most part, it worked though!
I have enjoyed working on this block for Wendy so much I have pretty well decided I will try to duplicate the block for myself at some point. I'm telling myself that anyway because this one is very hard to mail away - I really want to keep it! roflol
