Another Heart

Here is another picture of a heart that I made. I forgot to put it in the last post. I think this one would be considered vibrant with all those rich colors. And there is a picture in the center of a fairy.

More Chain of Hearts

I have been a little busy trying to make more hearts for the chain of hearts group. I am trying to use colors that I normally wouldn't use. For example red and yellow aren't colors that I would normally go for. Not that I dislike them. I really do love all colors.

Chain of Hearts

I am playing "catch-up" with my blog. Here are a few hearts that I received. I am really glad that I joined this group. I have no plans yet for these hearts because I have too many plans! lol I keep changing my mind.

The cream one is from Renea. I don't know if you can see that there is lace behind the silk ribbon roses. Great idea! Just beautiful.

This heart is from Jakkie. Another beauty! Look at the button cluster. I love it with the seed beads. And if you can see it she hand painted the center white button. And sent me another one. Wow!

Flickr Link

I just realized that I didn't add a link to my blocks for the DYB RR. They are on my Flickr site here. This is a picture of just one block. I made very bright blocks. Way out of my comfort zone so it was fun!


I haven't posted anything in a long time! My youngest son needed eye surgery. That is over and done with and his eyes are looking better each day! Thank goodness. Now I am able to breathe again. I was so overwhelmed by this that I wasn't able to do anything creative. I just couldn't make a decision. Not that that is ever easy for me on a good day! lol But I think I'm back now.

I am in a RR with CQInternational. This is a DYB one. You get to complete an entire block and then pass them on. There are 6 of us so there are 6 blocks. These blocks will be traveling to California USA, Oregon USA, Japan, Colorado USA, New York (me) USA, and Alberta Canada. I should be so well traveled!

Here is a picture of one of Leslies blocks that I was finally able to finish. I hand dyed the silk ribbon. And I made the needle tatted butterfly on the bottom!! It took a few tries before I had something that resembled a butterfly. lol My inspiration for this block was the butterfly charm in the center. The package says "Pure Allure Floral Inspirations" Floral sliders featuring Swarovski Crystals. They are beautiful. I also picked up some yellow ones. There are other colors but the store was out of them. I will be looking for more! The lace motif is painted using Lumiere by Jacquard. I think that there is a bit too much gold in the piece. When I dabbed at it to remove some, all that came off was more color. I will have to play with this a bit more. And that's not a bad thing!

I'll be back shortly with a few more pictures I have to share.
