Worked on this little block last week. It is 6 1/2 inches and a new challenge to make everything fit with in the seam lines. I find that the really hard thing for me is actually putting the block together where all the fabric pieces come all the way to the edge of the seam line. This one is a little short in a couple of places. I spent lots of time Friday night practicing by putting together 5 (I think) blocks for the peacock crazy quilt. One of the blocks I will use in the beading rr I just joined. Will post pics of those later.
On this little block I tried out all kinds of flowers using different ribbons. I like the way they turned out. My first spider web and spider.
This little block are the fabrics I picked out to do a jewel tone block for donation to a cancer fund raising quilt. Have started working on it today.

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
