PTG quilt block completed

Well, we could embellish on more but I think it is done. The Chinese character is 'shou' which means longevity. Four different pieces of tatting, all Mary Konior's patterns. Stitched the dragonfly in gold threads; Added a beaded star, a beaded rose and leaves, silk ribbon irises, more beads with sequins, milky white flower glass beads, green metal roses, a Chinese button, silk trim of black flowers, green ribbon buds and small yellow rhinestones.
Georgia should be receiving this soon in the post.
