First Round Robin

This is my first block I received from Sue Biles in our Kitty Kitty Round Robin. This is my first time of doing a round robin. I am a little nervous and excited too. I sure don't want to mess anyone's block up. So, here is the pic after I done my part to it.

I found some cat prints and I appliqued it down. Used the buttonhole stitch on that. Done the buttonhole wheel on top and boy was that something to learn. Thought I was never going to get it right. This was the first for me doing this stitch. Then I done feather stitching with french knots for little flower buds. Then appliqued the flowers on. Wanted to give the look like he was laying in a flower bed waiting for a butterfly or something to pounce on. I placed the ribbon on using the checkered chain stitch and on the bottom just straight stitches. Now time to begin on my next block which belongs to Lori Kinney. Will post before and afters when I get it finished.

Those buttonhole wheels look pretty good to me. Both blocks are GREAT!
