CURRENT RR DYB SEW IT UP RUBY'S BLOCKS

I FINISHED RUBY'S BLOCK IN THIS RR AND HAVE SENT IT ON TODAY TO CATHY.  ALSO SHE ASKED THAT WE EACH SHARE AND WORK THE 6TH BLOCK TOGETHER SO ALL SIX BLOCKS WILL BE FINISHED WHEN SHE RECEIVES THEM BACK.   MY WORK ON THE 6TH BLOCK IS THE ROSE TRELLIS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BLOCK.  


THIS RR IS TO DO WITH SEWING AND ALL THINGS ABOUT SEWING.  RUBY PICKED SOME VERY CUTE MATERIALS TO PIECE HER BLOCKS WITH.  I EMBELLISHED THE "NEEDLES AND PINS" WORDS, THE BLUE SPOOL OF THREAD, THE GOLD THIMBLE AND THE SEAM TREATMENTS WITH THE BLUE FLOWERS AND THE ONE AT THE TOP OF THE BLOCK TO BRING THE BLUE UP ONTO THE GREEN PART OF THE BLOCK.  ALSO RUBY ADDED THE WHITE LACE WHEN SHE PIECED THE BLOCK.  I ADDED MORE WHITE STITCHES ABOVE IT AND THEN PLACED THE BLUE BUTTONS ON IT.  I TRIED TO EXTEND THE WHITE MORE ABOVE THE BUTTONS WITH STITCHING TO PARTIALLY COVER THE YELLOW TAPE MEASURE FABRIC.  ALSO I STITCHED ON THE SILKY.  IT IS A SWEET LITTLE GIRL SEWING FOR HER DOLLS.   THEY ARE PARTIALLY HIDDEN UNDER THE LACE, BUT THEIR DRESSES AND FEATURES ARE BROUGHT OUT IN STITCHING ALSO.   THIS WAS A FUN BLOCK TO WORK ON.  

HERE IS THE 6TH BLOCK THAT WE WILL SHARE IN EMBELLISHING.  I STITCHED THE ROSE TRELLIS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BLOCK.   RUBY HAD A LARGE PIECE OF BEIGE LACE GOING DIAGONALLY UP THE SIDE AND IT JUST CALLED FOR A TRELLIS AND FLOWERS. 

THIS WILL BE A FUN RR FOR ALL OF US, AS WE ALL ENJOY ANYTHING TO DO WITH SEWING OR USING THE TOOLS.
