Faces RR Juli's Block

     Having a beautiful stitcher with a creative mind to set the theme in a round robin is the best asset in the world in stitching and with Kathy ahead of me I can follow normally in her slippers, but not her shoes.

     I chose to use the lace that I hand coloured with pastel oils in three shades.  I beaded around the cab and added dimension.  I did a few beaded seams and added some sparkle and as Kathy used butterflies I wanted to continue that theme as well.  I also chose to do a silkribbon rose.  I truly loved the challenge of what to do with a face, and now I would not hesitate to use lace cut outs as a swirling spring setting.
