So this is what I did to make the lower left more cohesiv, first I did more of the featherstitching to fill it all, removed that wool pink thread,stitched my seam,added pink beads and yellow flowersflowers. Placed the Rose cabochon and used more beads a little bow with two golden charms complete my work, Just wanted the colors from the upper right to come down to the lower left and I do like it now better then before atleast it looks finished now and if tammy does not like it she can always remove it.

This is what the block looked like when it got here. Not much left for me to work with,upper left corner and it had two seamtreatments done. So I had to work around that.
So after I have been looking at this block for hours I just can`t bring myself to mail it out ,I do not like the way the lower left looks and have to think what I can change so it looks more cohesive.

I was reading on this blog about knitting socks for a group of mentally handicapped adults in a group home in Germany. http://www.handarbeitstante.blogspot.com/
I told my wonderful friend Doris about it and we decided that I knit the socks( Doris does not knit) and she will get some sweets to go into the packages . We picked her namesake Doris with red socks,Nicole with a pair of white ones and Harry ( my dads brother was named Harry) with blue /green socks. So over the next several month we will be posting more about this .

I decided to stitch with green silk all the way around the fairy and the cabochon up to the end of the block and added pink beads to it.
I had to fill a few more empty spots and decided on the pink glass heart beads to complete my seam treatment.I love making these little flower baskets and placed a silver charm to finish this part of my work.
This little heart with glas bead flowers and silk ribbon leafs complement the leafs on the other corner.
