Thanks for playing along with this years Block of the Month.  If you haven't started yet, now is a great time to begin.


  1. I would love to do some fancy stitching applique to embellish this design.

  2. I would put some seed beads in the yellow centers, Reeze. And, I am a follower!

  3. I'm pretty new at this, and would need to have it in my hand before I could even envision how to embellish it differently than already mentioned. Thanks for the download!! Am signing up for your newsletter right now.

  4. Happy following you!
    How about some white outline dimensional hand stitching.....
    Thanks so for sharing!

  5. Did you send the newsletter yet this month? I didnt get it but the internet has been gremmliny lately... Love this series. Should I sign up again? Ive gotten the previous issues... Thanks, Kate

  6. Oh I do love this block, love blues and yellows too. So to jass it a bit I would maybe add some beads, or make the center a 3 dimentional circle, or do a folded leaf... Lots of options, and its just nice the way it is too. Thanks much! And Im a follower, thought I was already but I guess not.

  7. In order to embellish, I would probably use some DMC complementary color floss to add veins to the leaves and some more dimension to the blossoms. Maybe a bit of fabric paint to the center of the blossom if I did not do the floss. I think I already follow your blog because I get notice every time you post.

  8. Depending on the fabric you choose, thread painting on the blooms might be really nice. You could follow the lines of the designs. I am a follower already.

  9. I would add some seed beads to the center of the flowers and applique with a decorative stitch. I am a follower of yours already.

  10. Did you send the newsletter yet this month? I didnt get it ... Love this series. Should I sign up again? Ive gotten the previous issues... Thanks, Kate

    1. Я бы добавила тычинки в цветах. Было бы, на мой взгляд, интереснее... С уважением, Лёка.

  11. So cute; embellishments says beads and some hand embroidery. I get your email.

  12. Love it! And it's my favorite colors.


I'd love to know what you think! Thanks for sharing your ideas.
