taking advice

Especially Gerry's advice, when Cqing is always a good idea.

the more input you get the better your own ideas are in the end!

just think of what the golden age of reason would have been if there had been no salon's for the intellectuals to talk, argue and share idea's?

Think of what Art would have looked like if not for the coffee houses and bars in paris and elsewhere!

nice but not stunningly beautiful.-not that I am comparing my little things to any of this mind you I'm just ruminating.

anyway, I took Gerry's advice and added a fan to the yawningly empty brown patch and a nest with birds above it.

I give you the side-by side comparison

sewing and coughing don't mix!

looks like a cqshop barfed on it!
Ok, so, walking pnumonia isn't fun, especially over a holliday!
I have been trying to plug along through a stuffy nose, shaky hands and coughing myself insideout.
my friends sewing and coughing don't mix!
ort's jar
half the time you loose your place and the other half you loose the needle, it's just badness.
I'll live, that prognosis is good, though I'm still coughing, it doesn't make me want to take a nap anymore!)

I got my FFT RR#16  block back and is it lovely!
I'm just going to add a thing or two and it will be perfecto!
I also worked on the changes Gerry suggested for the blue/brown block
(Isn't she the greatest!)

I added a fan to the yawning empty brown space and added a birds nest with two glass lampwork beads, I got in my monthly embellishments package from Eveningstar designs.

those are great if you need a random stash boost!
Carolyne sends out a selection of ribbons, lace, beads, silk ribbon, buttons, charms, silkies and all sorts of fun stuff!

it's totally random and a lovely little surprise in your mailbox once a month!

I get nothing for promoting BTW.
I just love her cqclubs and she is a lovely person to have gotten to know over the years.

we put up the tree this weekend and it looks fabulous like it does every year! it does need one more string of lights though, i ran out of them at the top of the tree so when they blink the whole top goes dark!
I started a stocking for my DD she requested I make her a new one this year, in apple greens with a turtle on it! so far so good!
