New Work on Bom's

Here it is... My High hopes Block came home. I just love it. I am not sure when I am going to get it finished but it is for my Hubby one of these days. He can always make me smile when he sings that silly song.

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
the flowers.
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.

Well here is the last step of Linda's Song Block. I really hope she likes What I did. My part was the three red roses at the bottom of her "Song" and the White lace. The White lace reminded me of Angel wings and it fit sooo that is what I put on. In the Red patch ( in doesn't show up in the picture) I also put a ribbon spider web rose with a celtic cross charm. I thought it fit with her theme really well The Block is soo pretty. Linday I hope you like. Now I am dreaming of what my block will look like when it comes home!!

This block is JK's for Green Garden. I did two seam treatments that are not showing up in the picture. I did them with fine Green thread and the picture is just not picking them up. For my "patch" I appliqued you a light green "basket" and then of course I had to fill the basket with green yarn balls. OOOh and coming out of one of the green balls is some green thread and a green needle and of course. Tiny green scissors!!!
Now for an apology. I have been soo busy lately ( for about 2 weeks) that I could not even hardly breathe. I am sorry about not blogging or posting much. Some times being mom and dad and go for this and do that while the deployment get a bit much I think but God is still in Charge and is Wonderful and gives me strength for every day
