Details 23 and 24

Both are supposed to be wisteria but could be mistaken for grapes! Detail 23 is done with 2mm silk ribbon and french knots that I wrapped either two or three times around the needle; detail 24 is the cast on stitch.

I found that when I did mine I preferred the cast on stitch. Which did you like better?

I had trouble with the cast on stitch knowing where to start it and then finding out it faced the wrong way. I really liked using the 2mm silk ribbon, especially as I have quite a few shades.

I thought WISTERIA as soon as I saw them ! They are wonderful !

The birthday cake for your son is lovely ! and I did not know about Gum Paste ! thank YOu !

Love how you organized your beads and I am taking a tip there because mine are okay in the toolbox I have for them,...but still get messy and mixed up. I like see thru bags TABBED ! and in a dish / storage box.

But your block ! your crazy quilted block and all of it's delicious stitching. WOW WOW WOW I could hardly tear myself away from looking and looking and looking at that !

Congratulations on your Brilliant Blogging Award.

Indeed you deserve it with such creativity and spirit as I see here !
