Got some work done

Here is a book cover that I have started. It is for the Celtic RR that I am in . It is for the Crazy Quilting International group. I have done the "binding" as my part. I am hoping to make this as a book cover for my Hubby as he is Celtic and I think this will be wonderful for him. I have ask for no beads and to think in "manly" colors. I am sure it will be wonderful when I get it back.

Here is Violet's Red block in the CrazyQuilting for Newbies group. My camera doesn't like the color Red for some reason. I was not able to get good pictures but I worked on the top patch with the crochet flowers. Under the crochet flowers there is button hole seam treatment with little lazy daisy flowers. also in the center block I made a "folk Art" type group of flowers for Violet. also I put the red braid on a seam with tiny red seed beads. I hope Violet likes what I have done to her red block. Now it is on its way to Kathleen in England.

Wow this project is a book cover that a lady here wanted me to make for her. She wanted the base colors to be Bright Pink and Bright Orange!! Those colors together is very hard for me but I do like how the cover turned out. This is the back. The flower in the left corner I beaded with green beads on the leaves and pink and orange beads on the flower part.

Sorry I shook a little when I was taking this picture. This is the front of the book cover.
the Letters are CTR. That stands for Choose The Right.
The top right corner has a orange Tatted Butterfly. In the bottom Right corner is a Spider web. In Victorian Days the spider and spider web is symbols for good luck. The
spider is two lazy daisy stitches with tiny legs.

And here is the book cover layed out flat so all the details can be seen. In the center is three hearts that are intertwined. The lace on the top pink patch and the flowe lace with the beads I hand dyed.

February finished, March started and Reds

Hi all.
I know I am wayy behind in posting. Here is the February block all finished for my big project. The special things on this block are. The red and white trim on the red patch. That trim came from Norway. If I remember right ( and please forgive if I am not right) Ati gave that to me.
The Blue patch says Patience and the Pink block says "Love Suffereth long." Patience is one of the fruits of the Spirit of God and of course "Love suffereth long is part of 1st Cor. chapter 13. On the rest of the block will be the rest of the true meaning of Love.

Here is the start of the March block. So far it is still a Nekkid block . On the cream patch it says "Love Envieth not" and on a patch that I don't have appliqued on yet it will say " Love rejoiceth in the truth". I am not sure what verse I will put in the middle yet but I am sure it will come to me when I am ready to work on that patch.

Here is My Red block for the Red color study for the CQforNewbies group. There are a couple of trims on there that are not showing up. There is a red braid on the seam above the crochet rose. The rose is really a terra-Cotta red and not pink as it looks in the picture. Also in the bottom left corner there is a spider web complete with a spider. This block now will be mailed off to Kathleen in England for her to work on next.
As some of you now know I now have a service dog in training to help with some of my disabilities. Sally has her own blog if you all would like to take a peek here is the link. I am not sure how to make the link active on here so you might have to do a copy paste.
