Calla Lilies


Here it is...after quite a bit of doing and redoing, my Calla Lilies block for the Forget Me Not BOM by Esther Aliu.

I am using this free BOM to experiment with different things.  For this block I used some Prisma pencils around the center and edges of the flowers.  I also used a bit of green stencil paint aound the centers.  There is wool felt for the stamens, as well as little gold beads.  I also used some burgundy wool felt for the vines extending from the center. 
I decided not to add any more stitching to the leaves as the fabric was such a large pattern and seemed quite effective without anything additional.  The little fronds are done with Valdani floss in stem and straight stitch with little brownish red beads added on the ends.

I think that about covers all the 'extras' for this block.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. :))

Wonderful work. I had a bit of a hard time reading your bog as the colour of the text is dard on the black background. Maybe it is on.y me though.
