Update on White and Peacock Blocks

I haven't had a lot of time to work on my own things but did add this crocheted doiley I made to a peacock block and added shell beads around with some rhinestones, big turquoise button and flower to the center.
This is the 4th shades of white block and I practiced my sre flowers on it by using a pattern from a sre book. I like the way it turned out. also tried out some bead flowers, which I will add more to later. did a seam treatment with bugle beads and embroidered flowers, and started another of those feather seam treatments. Plan to use beads on it this time and see how that looks.

And finally, I finished the pillow top I was making. I added a paisley, beaded roses surrounded by some venice lace that I added beads to, a spider and her web, a button cluster, some sre roses, a sunburst of beads, the print on silk, and several seam treatments. Now to purchase a pillow form and put it together. This is the one I am going to try and sell to see how that works out.

The white on white is scrumptious! It reminds me of Victorian days when everything was so delicate and lady-like. Beautiful work hon!!

I love the dyed motif, but I really, really love the white on white. I may have to give in and try one of those!

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
