My First February Finish

About time, after nine finishes last month. I finished Rita's round robin block and sent it on earlier this week. This top picture is the naked block as she sent it to me. Her theme was summer.

Here it is after I worked on it. What is summer without the sun? That's why I added the sun at the top in goldwork. Couching down all that metal took several hours. I kind of ran out of steam after that.

Here's a close up of the sun.

And here is one of the two seams I did, along with the other motif. It's a little rock garden.

And my last seam, inspired by Joe T. Garcia's in Fort Worth. The place is a wonderful summer place, and its outdoor patio is always covered in lights of many colors. To me, the place -is- summer.
