more progress

more progress on Kerry's block. I did add snow to the branches. I know the angle of the baubles looks funny, but I wanted them to be square to the block, and how it will sit when it is sewn into the skirt. They are very sparkly and pretty. I added an extra branch and greenery, the cream fabric was detracting from the motif.
I have started beading the tatting.  I have decided to go with a winter wonderland feel, icy and cool. Lots of clear beading and sequins that will catch the light without changing the overall colour values in the block.
Thats the plan.....that may change of course!

Wow that's beautiful! Love the white against the deep blue. It really gives a wintry feel.

I love that you used such a large piece of tatting to give the appearance of lots of snow. It really works. I also think the way you've done the leaves of the tree is spectacular-- I'm assuming they're bullions with wool??
