Colour, Colour, Colour

Another block with the embroidery from the 80's.
I must have spent hours doing those embroideries. lol.
Some ribbon roses, an up-cycled crocheted pansy,
lacey motif and including some stitches done in silk ribbon.
Bouncing shiny against matt, pattern against plain.
Dull beads with shiny beads.
By bouncing embellishments it helps with the way the light is reflected off the block. Creates more visual interest.
Oh so much better in real life. Or I just need more photography
