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
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.
