The second block I did, which is somewhat similar to the first, has the very last bit of my batty print fabric. It also has a moon, lightning, and a sinister tree. I did this tree with a few leaves left; they're done in black beads that have an iridescent coating that make them shiny blue, maroon, green and gold. The pumpkin patch is right under the tree in this block. And this is where I absolutely must stop, so I can send it on to the swap hostess, Gerry, with some work left to be done by whomever my partner will be.
This is the third block I've done for fall. I've started embroidering it, but have no plans for the final outcome. Maybe I'll practice a little more SRE on it. The shiny leaves are on some fabric I bought at Walmart. The fabric itself is like organza, very sheer, and the leaves are heavily embossed onto it, so I put some purple fabric behind it to set them off. It doesn't scream purple, it's just a hint. I really love to be able to use orange (HONKING ORANGE, to some) in the same block with royal purple. The fabric in the upper right corner is royal purple, though it looks sort of blue in the photo.
