For my Basic Motif, I decided to make some flip flops for my block with the palm trees on it, and some suitcases, just because I thought the picture I saw of them on the internet was so adorable. I used some Madeira gold metallic thread on the suitcases and was pleased that it wasn't the type that shreds. I'll use this brand again.
For my Expanded Motif, I made an old fashioned roadster. Then added a scene of a picnic. I can just picture myself relaxing under that tree and enjoying a nice spring afternoon.
For my Expanded Motif, I also wanted to make this cute little boy. He reminds me of my grandson who is about this age. I decided to flip the picture to better fit my block and change the candle to a bouquet of flowers made with floss and silk ribbon. I can just picture him picking flowers from the garden and presenting them to me with a shy little grin.
For my Mixed Technique, I used one of the pretty designs in our handouts. I decided to try making some woven roses out of perle cotton. I also used silk ribbon and made a gathered rose for the center, some fly stitch roses, and some detached chain stitch rose buds.
For my Wisteria, I used Jute for the twisted trunk, silk ribbon and floss for the flowers, and silk ribbon and perle cotton for the leaves.
