The last few weeks have been hectic. Four friends have been ill, two in the hospital. Three are on the mend, getting better everyday, thank God. We said a sad farewell to one, he will be greatly missed.
This is Juli's block from the Faces II DYB RR. It was a lot of fun. I went for an oriental look and used two hand-painted lace motifs for the head-dress and collar, another painted lace motif near the bottom left and a crocheted rose. It's been many months since I crocheted anything- it was enjoyable and I made 6 roses in different colors. I then added the beading. I really enjoyed beading and I'm looking forward to the beading RR which is soon to begin. Hugs and stitches,
