The last one!

This is the third one, silk ribbon and floss embroidery, lace ,charms and couched flowers,it was fun to make them ,but unless some one will ask for it I will move on to something new.

The second one has lace with Jo-Jo flowers,charms and silk ribbon embroidery with flowers.

All the little goodies I got at Michaels on sale two week`s ago.I was shocked that it still came to $100 .I need it for Gerry`s block!

As the Blue Willow was the Inspiration, I printed it on fabric and used a butterfly fabric with it to make my mirror and use the same white fabric for the handle.To finish it I used 2 porcelain beads.This was another wonderful Block that got finished and is on it`s way home.

These blue and white fabrics just screamed for a Kimono and here it is.

Blue Willow

This is the finished Asian Block for Darlene. Her colors where blue and white with the blue willow as inspiration.My first addition was a blue cherry blossom with white velvet leafs from Japan.

Time fly`s

Time just seams to fly,I was finally able to finish Gerry`s Encrusted Block. Her theme was Queen of hearts with soft pinks and cream. I just loved this combination.First I needle felted with pink and white wool around the Queen of hearts picture,added beads,buttons and charms. Made a heart flower twig on the top,tatted heart with beads on the right.The charm bracelet and a little Bling with crown on the lower right finished this block.
