Suz's block finally arrived. I was so delighted that it hadn't got lost like her earlier one! The block was in pinks and Suz said she wanted garden visitors! I pondered on this for quite a long time and then decided to create a magic garden! I think it was all the pinks in the block that made me think of magic! I have used crochet a lot! I spent some time on the net looking at flowers of different kinds and visualizing how I would crochet them.
I started by making the silver flowers and then the blue one with the yellow center.
I made bright yellow buttercups and embroidered on the white flowers with a simple lazydazy stitch and the clear bead as a center.
Since the theme was garden visitors, I made a purple butterfly and the snails with a golden fleck! Its all Magic!!!
I added beads to embelish my work and add to the picture. I normally work on my patchwork only with a variety of stitches, and this is the first time that I have used beads, lace and crochet!
So this is how the block looks now before I send it on to Kim to do her bit and then send it back to Suzi to complete!
