Dreams of Spring RR: Clairee's Block

Here is my part for Clairee's block!
I added this bouquet in. I tried out a new version of a sideways roses, and love the result it's basically a lazy daisy for the center then ribbon stitches. I really enjoyed this rose so I'll be using it more often. I added in some leaves and then some sweetheart roses. Then I added some feather stitch greenery, and some longer vines. I added purple sweetheart roses to the vines and then added some smaller vines and size 15 seed beads to the feather stitches.
Here is an overall photo of Clairee's block.
I also added in the red moon and stars bead since I thought it looked nice there.

Melissa the yellow roses are beautiful. I saw some similar in a mag last week and was really taken with them. Did you call them Penelope roses?

Melissa said...

Yes Jo, the book Ribbon Renaissance has a rose that is called the Penelope rose that is worked in that method, I didn't follow exact but just put ribbon stitches around the print. I really like how that turned out and hope to create that type of rose more often.
