Here is a pic of what I accomplished on Connie's Block..Here theme was the Rocky Mountain!
The pine cones are done in a Bullion Stitch.
Lupine is "French Knots"
The fish is suppose to represent rainbow trout (I know one has to use imagination for this one) - Cretan Stitch..
Pine Trees - Cretain Stitch
Black-Eyed Susan - Combination of Dmc Floss and Crewel Threads with beads...I also added a yellow butterfly.
Seam Treatments were the "Fern and Fly"
I also added a Deer or Elk button..
