Windsong Jewels: My work on Kari's Block

Last night I worked one of Kari's blocks that I picked to embellish for our DYB RR (Do Your Block). I added some little branches using 4mm silk ribbon padded straight stitches. Also some little round spacers with a seed bead in the middle for little flowers. I have to admit this is one of the first RR's I've done and I am so scared to mess up her block! I'm just glad I've been taking Sharon B's Encrusted CQ online class! I didn't think I would get nervous or scared but now that I have the first block in hand I'm totally worried! LOL I'm going to take it one step at a time...do some more seam treatments, and think about some motifs to embroider. My hubby keeps telling me, just do what you like and what you think looks good because that's the whole point of doing a RR, to have other's work on your blocks. So with that in mind, I'm trying to relax, have fun and embellish how I think it would look nice!
