Kerry's DYB block

This is a block from the DYB rr that I am participating in. This has been sooooo much fun! It's great to be able to see what everyone does on these blocks!

On this particular block, the center patch had a silk impression of a feather that I thought would look good outlined or beaded. As you can seen, the embroidery is all I did. I wanted to keep this block a bit more airy and light in keeping with the colors and think I succeeded! The owner of this block raises sheep so I gave her a mini version that won't require quite so much maintenance! :_) The vine is done in a Caron watercolors thread and i'm realy pleased with the way it helped pull together the yellows and pinks in the patches. Then...my (sorta) trademark, a tree. This one is a bit different and is more along the lines of an oak. I hope she enjoys it!

Leslie, you do amazing work. I love the tree tutorials you did for us. I plan to get my needle busy and practice some more.
