OOYCZ - Out-Of-Your-Comfort-Zone Contest

This is a contest that I joined in the group CQForNewbies.
It was a 3 part contest. One for Newbies, one for Experience to master CQers and another for those who don't want to make anything but have fun looking at pictures and guessing who made them.
For the Newbies, those who have never finished a block, our mission was to make a block or a project. All we had to do was to start and finish something.
The Experienced CQers, this is a chance to do something new. Try new techniques, different stitches etc...
I am in the Newbie group.

This is my OOYCZ block completed
This is the first time I ever tried a paisley.
I used sequins and that was hard to do because I didn't even know how to sew them on. I had to look at pics and enlarge them to see how it was done.
I am really happy with it.
The sequin flower was fun to do, something different for me.
Again this is my first time at using ribbon like this.
SRE rose, and the yellow seam treatment is a stitch challenge that we did on the group.
I did an Up and Down Buttonhole feathered stitch combined with the chain stitch.

The stem is the running stitch with the fly stitch fern stitch.
Again, first time at using buttons and motifs.

I really enjoyed doing this contest. It made me do things that I have never done before, it was fun.
