greens and yellows

Hi all
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.
Also I had a beautiful gold butterfly that I had and it looked soo cute on the corner with the motif soo I thought I would add it.
Guess what... Hubby is coming home next month for a few days!!!!!! I am soo excited.

Yellow RR Blocks

This block belongs to Kathleen in the UK. She did the wonderful flowers on the right side. I thought and thought put the lace on the left side on the gold block.

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.
