Cris's Block round 3 done!

I just put the last stitch in this block.  Whew! LOL  The doggy was fun and it is my favorite.  I did use three different shades of floss on her but you can't really tell unless you look at it a certain angle.  OH WELL!  LOL  It is still cute!  I even put a bling bling jewel collar on her. 
I added some beads to some of the seams and put a "C" on it and did my first ribbon embroidery with my Gloriana hand dyed ribbon.  It was fun and not as hard as I thought.  Getting it to lay flat is the key I guess.  I am sure I will get the hang of it.  I also used some of my Wool/Silk Caron Collection thread, it is nice and fluffy.  Will have it in the mail on Tuesday!  Have a nice weekend all!

Well, you have to know I love the dog! And everything else as well. Would have never known this was your first attempt at SRE, and such lovely fibers you chose to share. I'm honored.

Thanks! I think she turned out cute. I tried to make my stitches smaller and closer together than the butterfly and I think it turned out good. It's all in the learning process I guess.
