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.
