I have finished Karrin's UTS block and have to show it off. Everyone who worked on these blocks did such a wonderful job of using beads that I was a little intimidated! But then inspiration hit!!
When you look at all the already finished blocks you will see why I came up with my block. My block is a pearl garden!! I used some fresh water pearls on it. I have had them forever just waiting for that extra special block to use them on!
Here it is my block for Karrin:
I have this wonderful book called The Silk Ribbon Embroidery Bible. I found in it a UTS motif. That is where I got the inspiration for the "pearl flowers". This of course in my fantasy land is where they grow the pearls for the castle and treasure chest! Of course you have the mermaids go and pick them!
(Okay, Okay I will come out of my fantasy world and finish this post!)
