Beautiful Beginnings rr- Sheilas block

This is Sheila's block that i'm working on for the beautiful beginnings rr. The previous stitcher, Vicky Alktahib, had don the silky and the butterfly and the seam on the orange. My challenge was to try and pull some of the colors in the blocks together and help keep the eye moving. I envisioned a sort of window within a window. I created the mountains and some clouds and the added quite a bit of dimesional flowers above the cottage and around the mountain patch. I also created a dragonfly .....and made a switch on the wings....which I think look great now! Enjoy!

I have a question Leslie- what happened to the under the sea project going to that children's cancer ward? Did it ever get finished?
