Bits and bobs


Wendy's Block - My work, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.
While in Colorado, I finished my work on Wendy's round robin block. I love her colors on this! My favorite pinks and greens! I pushed myself to continue the fan theme of this block while also using the pink roses from the fabric as inspiration. My biggest challenge was tatting the fan to go on this and then embellishing it with beads! I trimmed a couple seams with lace and rick rack with a bit of extra embellishment, added the big silk ribbon embroidery rose and the little lace fan.

Here is the block altogether. Gerry K did the lower right corner and Ati did the central fan. Now it heads to New Jersey for Meg to add her work on it.

pearls n lace
While in Colorado, I got to spend a day poking around a large antique mall with my daughter. We found lots of lovely little treasures ~ small bits of lovely lace and some faux old pearls whose patina I love!

MOP buttons
I even found a bag of mother of pearl buttons to add to my stash!

Purple n green
I picked up some other bits of trim, beads and fabric to use in crazy quilting as well. Funny how they ALL turned out to be in shades of purple and green! I think a purple and green CQ block is in the works!
Sending Happy Birthday wishes to my Mom today!
