This block is supposed to look like a stained glass window. I tatted the cross a few years ago with no real plan. It was originally going to be a bookmark, but it ended up way bigger than I had envisioned. The main window at our church has a Jesus on the cross statue with a purple cross behind him in stained glass, so I dyed some purple lace to go along with the black ribbon (leading) around the window. The red background came with gold sequins sewn on, which seemed appropriate.
The "L" is my initial, and the lilies of the valley my birth month flower. They are made with the wider white silk ribbon. Each is 3 petals with a bit of yellow hanging down. I drew the little Victorian boot when I was bored one day and added it as an after thought because I couldn't come up with anything else to put in that spot.
I promise that the next post won't take so long, since I almost have that block finished and I can download the pictures now.
