Block for a friend (edited)

This block is for a friend. It will be surprise for her, so I can't tell you until she receives it. Just a couple of progress shots. Will start adding the 'bling' next. I had forgotten how much I love these colours, the autumn tones, but I like 'muddy' colours. Don't think this block will see a needle today, busy busy busy all day. Have a good one.




(edited to add)
Thought I would keep the pics of this block all together. I think with all the work on the black CQ, I have experienced a little more withdrawal from embellishing than I realised.
I am loving doing this block, and I just want to go crazy and fill the whole thing up. All the "rules" have gone out the window. I might have to whip the stem stitch around the dragonfly wings, as in reality, the dragonfly 'disappears' and compared to the rest of the block, it looks like a big hole... watch this space for the finished block.

I love the peek at this block! Beautiful embroidery, but the tatted piece is just beautiful. I look forward to seeing it with your bling added.
