This is the block as embellished by participants of a Southwestern round robin. I will probably add afew finishing touches of my own -- one of these days.
Prior to the round robin, we had a Southwestern swap from which I received the pretty beaded choker that covers the seam below the N section.
This piece was done for a seasonal challenge. It includes crochet, knitting, surface embroidery and beading. The beads at the bottom read from L > R: gray days; winter; old snow; black ice; sleet; brr. I was thinking the reality of our winters in terms of gray, taupes and tans. My challenge was to find beauty in the bleak.You can see more of the challenge atcommunity.webshots.com/album/515327524tJpVPE
