In The Garden RR: Debby L's block

Here is an overall photo of her block! Isn't it lovely?
I added the sweetheart roses and colonial knots around the cherub that Lillian added. I used 4mm ribbon in 3 shades of variegated silk ribbon from Hand-Dyed Fibers.
I also embroidered the spiderweb rose motif using those same ribbons and adding in a green 4mm silk ribbon for the ribbon stitch leaves. I added metal flower beads and 2 butterfly beads to the motif as well.
Then I added the bow made with one of the shades of pink variegated 4mm silk ribbon and couched on letting the tails wander.This is a close up of the SRE motifs.
I also added this motif which is one of my needle tatted medallions with folded roses and leaf beads!

Your roses are beautiful!
I do use 4mm ribbon for the melanie rose, yours is lovely too.
I wonder what we do differenty.
I'm going to try doing a fargo rose with the twisted stem stitch petals..

Hi Melissa, looks like you've really got the hang of tatting now, that little motif is lovely.
