I won one of
Pat Winters "Bird Nests" from her blog give away. She creates beautiful, delicate, wire bird nests with pearl eggs (beads). Thank you Pat for your generous give away and for sharing your creativity. Take a look at Pat's Crazy Gatherings upcoming crazy quilting classes. I'll be watching for upcoming classes, maybe something in Spring 2010.

Stitching Weekend - I had some good stitching time this weekend. I have finished my work on Therica's Mermaid block, for the Mermaid RR.
I stitched in two areas. One mostly stitching the other beading.

Seahorse, pattern is from the issue 63 of Inspirations magazine.

Beaded Fish

I attempted to create two crazy quilt blocks for our county fair. I only finished one in time for the fair, but wanted to finish the second one because I like the colors. It is a work in progress, I'll be adding some beads and embellishing the lace motifs.

Summer Stitching and County Fair

Pretty in Pink - my deck garden - Pink Cosmos and Bee Balm
We've had humming birds and this beautiful butterfly visiting our deck.

Our County Fair was the last week in July. I entered a small CQ block, winning first place by default. I do like the block, fun colors to work with.

The HGTV Annual One Block Swap ended on Aug. 1st. Completed blocks were mailed to arrive on Aug. 1st. This is the block I made for LadyJ66.

Gonesewin made my favorite things block. She is new to CQing but you wouldn't know it looking at this block.

The completed blocks are posted on the CQ Wiki: HGTV Favorite Things One Block Swap. Enjoy the "Eye Candy". Forty-Nine "Crazy Ladies" out did themselves creating these blocks.

Finishing my stitching on Therica's mermaid block, should have photos to post this week.

New Blog!!! I found this very cool blog "Shabby chic Papirskatter". The creator posts downloadable vintage images to be used for scrapbooking, card making, collage, etc. Everyday she posts a new image. I've downloaded all that she has posted so far, can't wait to print some on silk for crazy quilting or use Digital Grounds and print on other fabric/paper.
