Getting things done

Recieved Kristi's fall rr block which she had done in lovely golds and brown. I decided to stay with that color way and I made a stumpwork owl in brown tones. I perched it on a vine and added beaded berries. I outlined the block with scolls in a golden brown floss and added gold foil leaves.

Well, I need to start making cafe panels, so happy stitching.

Busy Days

Haven't posted for a while as I have been quite busy. Had a slack period, so I joined 3 postcard swaps, a beaded doll bead-a-long, a beaded face pin challenge, a block of the month quilting project, an ATC swap, and the CQ purple RR. As always happens now I have a gentleman wanting me to make a bag to protect the tuba he bought on ebay, a commerical customer who needs 32 cafe curtain panels, and another gentleman who has commissioned me to make him a quilt from his father's neckties!!!

Well, I made 6 ATC's instead of the 12 I had originally planned. I got my designs embroidered for my personal Easter card giving. I'll put them together between other tasks I suppose.

Busy days

I have been keeping busy with various projects. I received my second color RR block. On Connie's block I used feather stitch with beads as my seam treatment. I hand-painted a lace peacock motif in varying shades of green. I accented it with seed beads, seqins, and bullion knots. I hope it meets Connie's approval.

I decided to made friendship dolls for the ladies in my Color RR. Since our color study is grren, I started with a green fabric and embellished with with beads and SRE.
