Grow your blog party!

welcome to all those who enter here!

I am going to cheat a little
since i have in the past given little home mini tours I am going to give links to those previous tours here and here and here.

I know I'm supposed to give you all a little blah, blah about who I am and what I do, but those probably do it best.

as for what I am working on now well that's anyones guess! I have a boat-load of UFO's to catchup on, new projects, monthly doings i haven't even started on, a class to teach and 1/2 finished projects, that I'm feeling quite snowed under!

CQJP blocks and ....

I wanted to start my CQJP blocks earlier

I thought I had enough of that paisley fabric to do at least one block but no


I couldn't even find a lousy scrap to show
 what I was looking for!

Then whoopiee!
Of all places, I found it at Jo-anne's, at a deep discount! yay!

So I could finally start on the silly thing.
I got 2 blocks done yesterday, with more to come.

Because well I hate this part. it's a chore, that once done the fun can start!

While I was at it, I finished another little purse

Oh! I was published again, in Canadian embroidery, in Kerry's article on bullion stitch!
So, lots of stuff happening.

But that's the way it goes isn't it?

Sometimes, it feels like you can't get a single thing done and then bam! everything, all at once!

Now I need to start on the BJP and a RR I just got into, maybe do laundry.........

So little time!

So much to do before the winter solstice!
 

I have been working on projects, for a beginner embroidery class,so if anyone in the seattle area that wants to learn a little easy-peasy embroidery come on down (over, up?) to gathering fabrics in Woodinville.


Also finishing up embroidery on other stuff as well as gifts and what not for people.
 



As well as getting my grinchy on.

gardens and flowers et fini!

  my block for the gardens and flowers rr is done!



I finished it while on a trip to India and be for you ooh and ahh, we were there for my DDH's job and not in the garden spot of bangalore but a suburb. More about that at a later date.


My block needed to blend well with the other blocks I got back from the ladies in our group, which were stunning by the way!

So I wanted to do them justice.

I "borrowed" the climbing grapes from Elizabeth

And the cast on flowers from Renée.


Almost everyone had some sort of climbing rose and a spider.

I loved the birdbath in Elizabeth's block set and used that on mine.

Then added bee's around Persephone and beads around the lace at the bottom left.

Now all that's left is to put it together.
