I have had finished Peggy's UTS block and thought that I would share it with everyone. This is a DYB RR so I got to work on for myself. Peggy had very pretty blocks to choose from. She machine embroidered a sea creature on each block. I chose the seahorse block. Seahorses are my favorite!I started by finding a piece of vintage lace that would go along with the first block done by Lisa Boni. Lisa had some very delicate work on the first block.
After finding the right lace piece it went along smoothly from there. I added "sea weed" by using the feather stitch. Shells from a vintage Hawaiian lei that I picked up in a antique store. I got it at a bargain as it really was falling apart. The "coral" that I added was using 4mm silk ribbon with the bullion stitch. Some MOP fish, lots of beads and of course I cannot let a block like this one leave my hands with out my little squid!
Here is a picture of the block that I stitched on:
For all my non CQI friends I have added a picture of the 2 finished blocks so far for this Round Robbin:
