white block

I've started embellishing white block #3.
Most of the white fabric that I'm using for the blocks are from my old dresses and it makes these blocks even more special because of so many wonderful memories.                              
                                 Tucks are joined with cretan stitch                    

macramé cord,bullion loop over a knot,tassel with synthetic pearls,knotted blanket and herringbone stitches                             

                              shisha framed with a tatted flower

Happy stitching!
Anita

Wonderful stitching. Waste not, want not is a good reason to use the cloth and you are making more memories. :-))
I like all the examples.
Did you use Closed Herringbone to achieve the band between two rows of Herringbone? It looks great. I'm another fan who likes your shisha and tatting.
