Cream on Cream RR: A Little More Progress

Yesterday, I did a little more work on Debbie's cream block. I added in leaves to the empty vines, and also added a piece of tatting with a white pearlized flower button. I also added glass pearls to the spiderweb roses. The piece of tatting is a motif made out of size 80 thread from the book Mini Tats. The motif curves upwards, which is perfect for this bouquet, adding a three-dimensional touch. Since I had never tatted that motif before, it became curved because I hadn't tightened up the chains enough, the good news is at least I can use my mistakes in my crazy quilting!
I won't be able to work on the block today, but hopefully soon I'll be able to add more!
