CQ update

While I have been trying to recover from the flue I worked on these two blocks that came in. The first is from the Kitty Kitty RR and belongs to Lori. I added a little repro print of a kitty with trim, buttons and flowers. Below that I did a lazy daisy seam treatment in yellow flowers with some yellow seed beads. Below and to the left I added another seam treatment with lazy daisy leaves and french knot flowers with teal beads. These kitty kitty blocks are some of cutest blocks I have seen. Now this one is elegant. Love the all black block. It is from the Beading RR and belongs to Cathy. The picture doesn't do it justice as doesn't show the all black and I only took a pic of what I did so you don't get the overall idea. Guess any light that reflected showed up as a goldish color. I added a button and bead cluster. Had some great black buttons that were perfect for this. Then I added a feather stitch in black beads to the right side of the patch and a little fuzzy trim piece with bugle and seed beads to the left side of the patch. Can't wait to see this one when it is finished.
I have also been working on a CYOT theme block and have almost finished it. Just lack one seam I am saving for when i get some charms I ordered for it. Will post that soon.

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.
