Tradewinds DYB
























Here is the latest block finish for the CQI Tradewinds RR. Cheryl had asked for several things that she associated with NZ. The last bit I added was the mountains, coming up out of pohutukawa clad bush (forest). I am thinking that there will be a bit more on this block, although it is officially finished. I will see how time permits between now and P-Day (Post).
The bush is all french knots which I whiled away the afternoon with Dr Phil while doing. I love french knots, they are a great, mindless task that I see great results from quickly.

The mountains are so realistic and I love all the french knots! French and colonial knots are favorites of mine because they can be so many things.

I just love the mountains. They look wonderful, as do the bushes. You come up with some of the most interesting ideas.
