This swap will be going on month by month soo I hope to be able to show lots of blocks. As soon as I recieve January. (I got word it was in the mail) I will post a picture of the two that I will have recieved.
On this one. I hope Sandy likes it.

Here is the yellow rose bush that I made on the side of Thelma's block in my crazy quilting international group. I also did the orange and green seam treatement on her block as well. On the bottom corner I did a ribbon rose in yellow to go with the yellow rose bush. I also made a blanket stitch seam treatment with some french knots on the tops of some of the posts .
This is a not soo good picture of Diane's block in my newbie's group. We are doing a study all in yellows. The picture is not good but I made a little set of flowers in gold thread and with yellow buttons. I also did the top corner all in shiny gold thread. I hope she likes what I did.
This next block is Lynn's block in the newbies goup. Again a study in Yellows. I made the yellow motif. I also did a couple of seam treatments and beaded them.

Then on Kathleen's block I made her huge K and then put 3 ribbon roses on the side of the K.. I hope she likes it .
This next block belongs to Chris in Billings MT. She had the cute bow in the center. I added the vine/flowers on the right side. Also the gold rickrack.
Then in one corner I added a ribbon rose with a few ribbon rose buds. Cris... I hope you like what I have done. OOoh I also added the beaded seam treatment above the ribbon rose.
Now for this . This is a crochet block collection that I had from a swap that I did a long time ago. I attatched the blocks with white and then connected them with dark blue. It turned out bigger then I thought. I am thinking of maybe giving it to one of my Kids for Christmas... Maybe. On my Ribbon basket that I showed on a earlier post. Well it was not what the judges wanted... BUT I got a Honorable Mention for another Crazy Piece that I had put in. I was happy to get it. It was a shock but I thought it was great.

The block is for the "Yellow Apples" group. I again did the Butterfly on my Embroidery machine. It looks like silver thread that I have added to a seam but it is really a shiny Gold. Those beads with the faces, I have had those for a long time and just had to put them on this piece. This is now headed to Peggy in Oxford FL. It will be really interesting to see how these blocks will turn out.

Now for this next block. The Theme
is Summer. And I was to do half the block. ok that was interesting to do. On the top which doesn't show up I did a bullion wrap inch worm!!! then on the Center gold square I crochet a tiny swimming suit. Next on the botton blue and white patch I crochet a bare foot to go with the swimming suit. Then on the pale yellow patch I sewed lots of different colored sead beads so you would have a beach to
walk on... well a pebble beach that is.
And I then toook a deep breathe and tried making a all beaded butterfly. This was only the 2nd time I have tried to do anything all in beads and I love the way it turned out. This is something I will be trying out again at a different time.

This next block is my attempt at beading again. I am soooo out of my
League with tis but I tried. This time the block belongs to Simona. I made
the blue star flowers. Then I tried to make a orange fan. The tails are dangly. I also around the edges of the block made a beaded edging. ( I know it doesn't show up in the picture). I then added the little orange butterfly.
The next block is Sharon's block. I made the two butterflies. That is a new way for me to make them but I
like it and hope Sharon does too. I added the butterfly charms and the seam treatment doesn't show up good but in the center of the little boxes there are little flowers.
The next block is Jane's from Purple Passion. I did the block with the four flowers. In the center is a set of beads and there are beads in the centers of
Also there is a fan seam treatment with beads and flower petal chain stitch with .... of course purple beads.
Now for a tiny bit on my life. The days are long and hard with out hubby but we are making it thru. My "sane" quilting , crazy quilting and just regular sewing along with knitting, and crocheting help to keep my mind busy. I wish my health would be a little better cause my energy is down but will I hope improve. Heard from Hubby and he is doing good. OOOOH and since I am now home schooling our son, He is making A's and B's for the 1st time since Elem. School!!!! And he is now a freshman. Man alive .. I am wishing I would have done this with my other kids. OOOOh well we live and learn.

This is what I did on the Green Peas block. The lace I dyed with lime Koolaid. I love the way it turned out. The fabric was full of lovely leaves so I went around one of the larger leafs in green beads and went around the other large one in outline stitch. I then added several "leafy" plant things and added 4 green leaf charms that I have had for a while. I think the corner turned out cute.
These next 2 pictures are of the CQfor Novices RR on the CQINternational group.
It is Kerry's block.
I at first went around the cute siggy with some buttonhole stitches. I think it made a nice frame . I also made the flower on the blue patch. The flower is of bullions and then of course green stems and leaves. The black flower was already on there in a sheer material. I think the 2 flowers look good together. I just have to figure out what is the best light to take these pics in.. Bear with me.. I will figure it out one of these days.
On this last picture I did a buttonhole fan seam treatment with little white beads. Also I just had to add the Dragon Fly. I beaded his body.
I think I got too close with this picture and that is why it is fuzzy.
Next I am working on a Purple Passion block. so more practice in taking pics soon.

Here is my "Here Kitty Kitty" Wall hanging. It is made from the 2 blocks I had in the Kitty RR. I just love it. The funny thing is .. I am more of a Dog lover then a Kitty lover but this is too cute. Thanks to all of you that worked on it.
Here is 6 of the ATC's that I am done with. They are for a swap in CQ for Newbies. I have a bit more time so I am going to try and make a few more. Working in small size is a real challenge for me. These all measure just 2.5 x3.5 .
Now I have to work more on the RR blocks I have. I have started one more spot on the BeadedRR block I have. And I have a Your Favorite Song block to work on. So back to work.

SanAntonio. I love the History and the place. I got a lot of pics but now I have to download them. We went to the wax muesum too. My legs were killing me when we left. ( I forgot and left my meds at home.... bad Idea!)
Today I put 13 more items in my online store, and Dyed my hair.
Now that was an adventure. It is the 1st time I have dyed it by my self. It took 3 boxes of dye!!! I guess that is what I get for having waist length hair but I like it. And I did a good job if I do say so myself!!
I also got a lot of the links and stuff on here so they will be easier to find.
I worked on an applique block.... Almost done. I will have pics on it soon.
I also started the almost impossable task of organizing my pics ... with a digital camera my pics are well to say the least...... needing to be organized!!!!

Yesterday I finished a outfit I was working on.
Today I was wishing there was more of me!!! I am setting up a RR in my crazy quilting group. I thought I would be lucky if there would be enough to fill one group... well I was wrong.....
3 groups are full!!!!!! Pics and details will follow on that one.
I got a little bit of regular quilting done and a block cut out.
I am looking forward to sitting down and doing my crazy quilting that I do in the evenings.

Well in 2008 I want to try this again.
I am going to try and use this as a sort of a diary-log thing so I can see what I can really get done in a day. I know somedays are going to be better then others but here is a start at least. I am even going to try and some pics too but that will be maybe in the next post.
In the next post I will write what all I got done today...
