WIPW, work in progress wednesday, a beginning...quilt block work

Hooray! My first Work in Progress Wednesday!!  I have been a follower (albeit from a distance) of Work in Progress Wednesdays since I first started reading on Sharon's pintangle blog - I read back to see when it began..could it have been 2009?  I have been reading her blog even before that, using it as a helpful stitch reference - anyway...

before shot of leaf and center flower (finishing up the first block of Quiltmania's mystery quilt block 2015)   here is the after shot, showing the work in  progress completed so far

these leaves have the addition of rust+blue dmc floss embellishments, and

the center flower has the addition of blue, bright pink/red straight stitches and bright pink/red french knots.  ( my photo taking  is a whole work in progress unto itself :P  )

and have added filler stitches in as well

special thanks to Queenie, whose weekly postings of WIPW have inspired me these past years, so that I have finally joined along :D  thank you!!
