Dreams of Spring RR: My block home!!!

Well my Dreams of Spring block is finally home!!! This is the before photo of the block I pieced and the embroidery I had already added! And now for the block after the RR! I only have a few finishing touches that I will be adding before it is totally complete!
When I saw the block upon it's return I just knew it was going to be a purse! So after I add a few finishing touches I'll be sewing it into a purse!
You can click on any of the photos to see them larger.
Click Here to see all the work I did on the other ladies blocks in the RR!
And now for a closer look at some of the details!

OH, WOW! WOW!! WOW!!! That is so gorgeous it almost brings tears to my eyes...really, it's just beautiful and I know it's even more beautiful right there in person. What a treasure to have everyone's samplings of lovely needlework on it, too.

Melissa said...

Thanks Bonnie! Yes I can't wait to have it finished and tote it around!

Melissa said...

Kathy,
Thanks! You know I only know how to make one kind of purse! LOL I'm not much of a seamstress so I usually just make the simple square kind where this block is the front, they are pretty, let the work shine, and useful! LOL
