Block for Ritva

This Tone on Tone block is for Ritva in Finland. She said a little color was O.K. and so I added Black and I do love the look of it. I hope she likes what I did. Lots of beading some antique lace and a little stitching with charms. I had fun with it and it was hard to stop and say it`s done!

Happy Birthday Sabina

Reciepe from chefkoch de

Today is my  friends  Birthday.So I baked her some Chocolate Chip Cookies. I will have to eat all of them too,so yummy.It is just to hot to mail them to Georgia.

Red Riding Hood

Darlene had used this wonderful printed image in muted colors.

Close up of my basket with checkert tablecloth.

I just loved this theme block and the owner Darlene requested nothing modern, more a little antique, so I placed some lace,with beading and embroidered the silk ribbon basket on top of a seam that was frayed..The woodland creatures needed to be on this block so the owl and rabbit charm got their spot on this lovely block.

Is it snowing?

My dear husband is my hand model and he did very well for his first time,thank you honey .
No it is not snowing but I have started to knit  my Christmas gifts for this year.So here is the first one done.Gloves ,yes this was my first pair and I will have to make more and change a few things that I did  not like about the pattern.They do fit well and it was something different to work on.

Candji`s DYB Tone on Tone Block

One of my favorites is the Tone on Tone Blocks. I made mine cream on cream and so did Candji. It was a easy choice on what to do. First I added a crochet Napkin ring that was made by my friend Dorise's grandma in Germany. On top of it I placed a little round Tenariffa lace .A very plain seam treatment and a whole lot of flowers and beads. I do like the way it came together and I hope that Candji likes it too.
