I didn't think I would finish this one so soon!
I put lots of lace and lots of flowers on this block
there is a lot more SRE than I usually place on a block.
I'm more of a seamtreatment/embroidery girl but i think it turned out ok
and not too much in the way of beading though I did do some
since this is going to be part of a bedspread I didn't want to do too much that would be "catchy"
I tried to stay in the pastels but there needed to be some contrast to the overall purplieness of the block.
there was some dark blue/black in the detail and a few of the other blocks so I don't think I wandered outside the parameters too badly

I have all these lovely "downton abby" prints I got from Susan over at
Gathering fabric when she had her theme day trunk sale featuring the fabrics I got a few of them.
I love seam-treatments so I went a little crazy..
they are a noisy busy bunch!
I hear them in the trees calling to one another "ooh! look! something nice and dead over here!"
I like how it all turned out,
I wasn't sure for a while there,
then I found the perfect beads in my local bead shop,
that were just the right color to blend in with the fabrics.
I used some of them on the faerie block because they worked well there too
Unfortunately I went back for more and they were gone!
quelle fin tragique!
I hate when that happens!
any how I think I have it just about done now so I can show it to you all
I love the look of SRE and I must practice more of it. I don't use it much or maybe I don't feel comfortable using it much.
even though it takes up a lot of real-estate and is great for when you have to fill in a spot that is just a little too bare
I still don't know if I need to do a little more with the stars on this part,
they feel a little undone to me
there are the beads, see just the right color!
