Jacobean Bouquet May Block

Finished May’s block this morning.  Added the last of the beads and homespuns.  It is pressed and ready to sew to April.  Had a few color struggles in choosing the right perle cotton for each floral element but it finally came together.  Love my little red velvet strawberry with the tiny seed beads and I used some of the nubby, tweedy pink wool I just felted in this piece.  Gives the flower a nice textural look.  Going to draw up the layout and stitching directions and then begin work on June’s block.  Almost half way completed with the flower bouquet blocks.   This has gone together quickly and has been a lot of fun to embellish with the perle cotton threads and beads.
