More on my January block

Here is the photo that I put on my huge project . The picture is of our oldest son. He is in the airforce. So of course I added the little plane .
Here is the little rose I added with some yellow and blue beads. You can see several of the seam treatments on this shot. The blue under the tan patch is a new knot stitch I have learned todo. Next time I will work it in ribbon so the detail will show up good.
In this picture I am showing off several things. The rose patch has thin gold thread worked over parts of the flowers.
The very handsome man in the picture is my sweet Hubby. He is now home from his deployment in
Afghanistan. The pin at the bottom of his picture says "Operation Enduring Freedom"

On both pictures I wanted them to stand out a bit so I added just a bit of fluff under the pictures so they "puff" up just a tiny bit. This last shot shows the entire block as a whole. I only have 7 patches and I will be finished. I have the next "nekkid" block almost ready to go.

Here is Randi's block in the Blue's RR. I worked the blue paisley in the center. The center of the paisley is filled with blue ribbon roses. I also made the blue "flowering" button vine bush on the side.
The blue square design seam treatment is also part of my work with the ribbon seam treatment on the bottom.
I hope she likes it.
