Well Here is the new outfit I made for my self. I really like it. The top comes down to med-calf just like a dress and then the pants have narrow ankles. The trim is a dark purple with gold threads. The top has side slits that goes up to midthigh and trimmed in the braid. I think it looks much better then in the pic.

The Puple block is Debbie's from Purple PassionRR I am in. I has soo much fun and Had to stop before I did most of the Block!!!! I worked on this while I was waiting for my Son to come out of his Martial Arts Class. Debbie.. I hope you like what I did. The roses are a light lavender.

need to update

1st I have to say a big I'm sorry. I ment to take pictures of the Favorite song RR... I really did but I didn't remember to untill the block was in the mail already.. oooops not a good idea for sure.

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.

A bit more work and more ATC

Well cause Kerry ( Crazy Quilting International) said I could do a bit more I tried to make a Flower basket. It was a challenge for me and looks kind of wonky but I think it is cute. I even "wrote" the word Flower in Beads above it. The words were easier then the basket for me!!! I then added the bit of lace with Purple and Ruby Beads.. I am now finished and this will be in the mail soon.. I hope Kerry likes my 1st attempt at a Beading RR!

Here is my last 3 ATC for the ATC swap ( CQ for Newbies). I thought that the sock monkey's are tooo cute.
The one that I am having a hard time letting go is the Butterfly. I love the way it turned out.
Heard from Hubby.(Remember Hubby is deployed) He is safe. Man I miss him but God is still in Control. I am very appriciative of the fact that I have even some contact. I am not sure how the families of the Vietnam made it. I am sure it was only with lots and lots of Prayer.
