bad blogger!!!

I am so bad about posting on my blog. Time just seems to get away from me, with family, work, stitching, and the CQwiki.

Current Crazy Quilting Stitching project is cq ornament swap. The ornaments are 6" tall, I have 6 pieced and 3 1/2 embellished.

Next CQ project is a crazy quilting round robin. I have never participated in a round robin, so I am very curious to give this a try. I've been in a couple "One Block Swaps", creating a block for someone based on their description of their favorite things. And receiving a block someone created for me based on my favorite things. Both times the experience has been AWESOME!!!

The 2008 One Block Swap was completed on Aug. 30th. I created this block for Lori, her favorite things are "water, ocean, sea, river, blue".  Have to say at first I couldn't think of anything, then my "brain" kicked in:

Ithinksew created this amazing block for me. My favorite things: rich summer colors, dragonflies, altered art

Link to all of the blocks created in the "2008 One Block Swap - Favorite Things" This page is a list of all the participants, each person has a page with pics of the block they created.

Back to my CQ Ornaments!!! Happy Stitching to all. Stay dry - I do hope this rain ends soon.
