Here are two of the blocks I finished in July. I decided to make the birds in block one look more realistic and added a little embroidery to the top of the vase. In block 4 I changed the orientation of the bird as it bothered me looking upside down. (Just my own preference.) I did the grapes with two different shades of ultra suede to add a different texture to the blocks. I will use it for the strawberry tops and bird legs too--thank you to fellow stitchers for that wonderful hint. I have five more blocks prepped and am enjoying my journey.
