I have my September RR block finished. Like I have said this is the first time I have done a RR of this type and love it. A challenge every month to work on another artist's block and someone you don't really know.
For some reason I was at a loss what to do with Rengin's block. She is from Turkey and this is traditional hand dyed fabric. It is so soft and the colors are beautiful. Then I thought ---OK Annette just create like it is your block and play. I think Rengin would want that. She is going to put all 6 of the blocks in a wall hanging and we are to make them all coordinate them.
The empty block I choose. The remaining 4 all just had the same colors and just different configurations.
Here is what I did with Rengin's block. I hope she likes it.
I actually got brave and dyed a little piece of trim that came from Ireland, thank you Ger. It is part of a medallion I had cut in half. Now the piece I put it on is really grey not the color shown here. I then put a button styled after Depression glass in the middle of it. The pretty ribbon is some my friend Denise sent me and it is so pretty. Then I added bits of Australian lace my friend Betty sent me. This is a friend contributed block let me tell you. I love getting packages of pretties and I use them all. Of course I always share back. The pretty ribbon is some from Flights of Fancy, well worth the price and now on sale.
I needed a main eye focal point so I used some of Nicki's beautiful dyed lace, sorry Nicki Lee what I did to your lace. Nicki's shop is RavioLee Dreams. I just embellished to my hearts content and this is the finished piece.
I am still working on my Haven/Meals on wheels pouches. More pics later.
There you go and thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.
