BLK Cancer block

I thought i'd post this pic before I get it out in the mail! It's a block that is being contributed to the breast cancer quilt project that Kate is heading up! I have another one in process, but am not sure i'm going to make it in time with it! this one looks much more yellow that it actually is. I don't know what I did to the settings. Anyway...its a black cq pieced block that I used gold rayon embroidery thread on. I did a bit of thread painting with the moth and added in the spider and some flowers around the dragonfly. There are a ton of beads as well to give it a bit of a lift. Still need to work on Sharons lessons....I think I flunked the one that helps the eye travel around the block! Mine gets stuck with the moth and buttons!!!! oh well....theres always another block and hopefully this one will work alright for the big quilt.
