|Upper-left section of purse panel.|
Along the top-center section, I made a green chain stitch along the light blue. On the dark blue, I added a light green button-hole stitch. In the same shade of green, I added two small lazy daisy stitches for the leaves and a tiny variegated blue French knot as a flower. A blue butterfly, made of four lazy daisy stitches and a straight stitch completed the dark blue section.
Next, I added a seam with sets of three pistil stitches using a variegated peach/cream Edmar floss. (I did not continue the embellishment along the entire seam, as the purse pocket would cover a large section, hiding it.) Along the upper-right, I made a green stem-stitched vine. And, using a soft yellow DMC rayon floss, I added lazy daisy flowers.
To finish this panel off, I added two pink rayon floss French knot flowers with tiny green lazy daisy leaves along the bottom, beneath the seam line of the pocket.

I believe I have also completed my second block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2013. I am just waiting for the end of the month to share it with you all. It has been a learning experience. Parts of it, I am very happy with, and others... well, I'm not sure how I would do them differently...
Thanks for stopping by!
