On the right is Chris's block with Kathi's additions. It is really pretty and I just love the SRE grapes she did. On the left are some of the fibers I have pulled that I am gonna use on it. I may add a few more things but you can get an idea of the colors I am choosing. I have already done a little work using the variegated Pearl cotton Embroidery floss I get yesterday at Hobby Lobby just for this project. I also got the dark blue one. I will post a photo in a few days so you can see how it is starting to look with some of these beautiful array of fibers and colors.

Ok big deal I only added one element! Can you find it? Ok it is the second row of semi circles around the fan. I was going to add flowers but the more I got to thinking about it the more I realized that this could get pretty complex and time consuming so I decided to just add the extra green I had origionaly planned. Figure someone else can add to that backdrop................I really like it. I saw it on a blog a few weeks back and immediatly thought of Kathi's fan on her block. Yep call me the problem child and LATE to boot. I am getting this in the mail today. I hope that the extra detail was worth the delay. If you click on the photo you can see it better. There are two colors of green in there and I love that effect!

Ta da! Despite Lou's instructions to the contrary, I found that once I started embroidering seams I just couldn't stop. I used kind of "chunkier" threads and larger, more widely spaced stitches than I might have in hopes of making Kathi's layering step easier.
Even though it wasn't my "turn" to add beads, since everyone liked the idea of a spider, that's in there, too.
Plan to mail Friday at the latest.

Here is Cris's block. I have finished it. I will wait til closer to the 15th to mail to Ami, since I am hoping to finish a quilt top I want Ami to quilt for me and I will send them together. Cris, hope you like what I added. I had to do a little SRE, it was begging for grapes. I also used a little bit of lace that Lou sent me as a hostess gift.
