Totally Useless SAL

Well, I had completely forgetten to post my initial picture for the Totally Useless SAL hosted by YoYo at Dragon My Needle. There is a button on my page to go to her block. Also, here is a link to the information if you would also like to participate in the SAL:
Here is my wee bit in its temporary location:

Kathy's CQ Block

Here are a couple of pictures of the work that I did on Kathy's block for the Royal Blue Group for the Blue Color Study on CQ for Newbies. The first picture is of a sea treatment that I did. It has a light blue cotton DMC herringbone stitch with french knots and glass butterfly beads.

This next picture shows another sea treatment and two patches. The seam was done in perle cotton #5 and is a feather stitch. The patch on the right is a herringbone circle with lazy daisy silk ribbon flowers and sequins with beads. The patch on the left is encrusted with beaded roses, blue buttons, lazy daisy silk ribbon flowers, french knot flowers, and yo-yo flowers with beaded centers.

Below is a picture of the whole block. I was the first one to work on this!

Nancy's CQ Block

Here are some pictures of the additions that I made to Nancy's block for the FFT#6 round robin on CQI. Below are two pictures of the block as a whole. Many talented individuals have worked on this so far!!

In this next picture, I added a vine of pink and purple flowers using lazy daisy and cast on stitch. I used Edar Boucle threads for the flowers. I also did two seam treatments. One of them has yellow french knot silk ribbon flowers with leaves and the other is the salmon herringbone with blue cast on stitches.

I also added a "seam" of crochet.

Here is a picture with a basket of flowers. I believe that these were done using french knots, but since I waited so long to post about it, I have!
