Sewn in January 2008 from a swap baggie I got from Hideko. ( Japan)
I wasn't happy with the block and have put it away with other ufo's.
When I had a better look on it I saw why I didn't like it in 2008.
I took the block with me to my sewing room and began to remove things. Much better right away.
I couldn't leave the block in a box forever, the fabrics are to nice for that! There is an almost white piece, it is old kimono silk with a stylish dragon woven in it. And other nice fabrics all from Japan.
I have added more to the seams and add and little crochet doily from my grandmother's stock.
Made a plan for the rest of the block. It is large! 46 cm ( 18").
I am stitching on it every day now and maybe next week I can show it to you.
Below how it looked yesterday.
