Snowball for Tahlia!

Tahlia's Snowball
Tahlia's snowball block is ready to mail!  This is postcard sized about 4x6".  Tahlia asked for my name, screen name and state to be included on the block and to embellish it in a way that represents me.  She likes peacock colors so that's what I used to piece the block.  At first, I was just going to do seams, but it looked so plain, so I filled it up with lots of stitching, a bit of lace and beads.  

I naturally tend toward the encrusted look when working with bright colors, though I'm not sure just why that is!

This is beautiful! Love all the stitching. Maybe it's time to pick up my needle and thread again. You've inspired me!

Today I was passing on stuff to a new employee, and found I had done a huge amount of doodling on the back side during a boring meeting agenda. It looks so much like crazy quilting. Maybe I do have this gene! But maybe not with stitches. :D
