Round Robin and Swap blocks

I have been swamped with my own work and quite a few Round Robins I joined so am just now getting around to posting pics of things I have been doing. Will have 3 seperate posts, I think to catch up on the past couple of weeks. Hope you enjoy seeing what I have been up to.

This is a block from a CQ for Newbies group RR that I added the paisley, 2 seam treatments and a simple dragonfly.

this is a Round Robin from the Kaye Woods group. Thought it was so pretty. I added the last red row with white hearts. I added a chain stitch heart in the corner hearts in pink.

this is another from the Kaye Woods group. I added the scattered flowers and the flower on the hat. Cute!

This block is one for the CQ for Newbies Spring Fling swap. This one I used some appliques and things I had with some seam treatments of chain stitch, flowers, fly stitch, which I finally figured out how to do, and a button cluster.

The second block for the Spring Fling. I did a couple of sre roses, a row of sequin flowers, an embroidered birdhouse with sre flowers, a metal butterfly with beads, an applique butterfly, decorated ric rac in pink and silver, accents of butterfly beads, a feather look seam treatment which is my favorite seam treatment, lazy daisy seam treatment, gathered ribbon with beads, a flower of hearts on the big pink flower and a couple more appliques

Third Block for the Spring Fling. On this one I put a little spider and her web in the corner, a chain stitch seam treatment, fan seam treatment, ribbon yarn seam treatment, flowers in a row seam treatment, and a chain and another fringe seam treatment. I also added the starburst in pink and a metal basket of flowers. Embroidered a birdhouse and decorated it with flowers. These 3 were fun to do.

Hon this is beautiful. I love that red flower with the beads done in the straight and lazy daisy stitch. You have beautiful stitching, and I cannot believe you are a newbie. Lovely work hon!

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.
