Friendship Block Finished

Here is the 6 inch Friendship Block for Wendy all finished! I love it!
I added gold beads to the tatting at the bottom, and a couple of gold beads to the leaflets on the ends of friendship. On the upper left I added ribbon stitch leaves to family and some Hen & Chicks tatting with red and gold beads added.
To the center I created a rose motif using melanie roses, spiderweb roses, and ribbon stitch buds in red, yellow, and pink. Then I added in stem stitch stems and ribbon stitch leaves, and very last I added some glass leaf beads.

Your friendship block is very pretty! Each time I see one of your completed blocks, I think it's time for me to combine my love of lace and quilting to create beautiful pieces like yours... I haven't done it yet, though!

This is so lovely with all the roses, lace, delicate stitching, shiny and matte fabrics, colors, beads, etc. A work of art!
