Cream on Cream RR: Jill's block

Well I tore out those awful orange looking Melanie Roses and instead added a climbing rose vine with butterflies and bees to complete Jill's block!
The climbing rose is a large feather stitch with lazy daisy leaves added and Melanie roses with fly stitch. Then the 2 butterflies are lazy daisy, ribbon stitch, straight stitch and fly stitches. I also added 3 gold bees to balance out and bring the gold around the block more. The block is now ready to make it's way home to Jill!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! I think we are often our own harshest critics... I thought the Melanie Roses looked great, but your new version looks even better!

Diane is right, we often are our own harshest critic. However, I do understand, I'm so picky about my own work, too. The new roses look great.
