herons are everywhere along the streams and rivers of austria.
here I have put a mating pair at the top of a tree
swans are a popular sight on the Danube, such elegant birds sailing across the water
you will find art deco everywhere in the artwork and frescoes of the twenties and wild peacocks on the park lawns
chickens and roosters are portrayed everywhere on furniture and textiles
there is also an abundance of redwork on blouses and jackets
I couldn't resist putting this little village on the lace this way so it looked like it was perched on a mountain side. I wanted to put a goat in there too but space foiled me!
and this lovely girl in the center wearing a traditional goldwork vest
and the whole thing. though I still have a little work to do on it, it is mostly done
I am trying to remember if I have posted any of the other blocks I have 1 to go and with this one have finished 8 so there are 9 total.
I still have the seams between blocks to do.
then I plan to surround it with more cq depicting seattle, where I am now, as a binding.
I will post the others if I haven't already but that will be in a day or so.
