Summer Breeze DYB RR: My Work on Leslie's Block Finished

I believe the block is finished! It's always hard to know when to stop or keep going but I feel the block has reached a nice balance and if I add anything more it would be thrown off.
I had a lot of fun working on it and it was my first time incorporating tatting into a Silk Ribbon Embroidery motif. Also my first time dying my tatting for a block.
I finally finished stitching in the gold thread to the wings and I love how it's turned out. A nice delicate shimmer.

This is really gorgeous work, Melissa. You have done a beautiful job and the block is so soft and welcoming.
