this one for my birthday
Foxglove and Wild Roses
and this one for our May swap with a theme of flowers
Queen Anne's Lace
Isabelle's stitchery is gorgeous, and while she doesn't have a blog, you can check out some of her needlework HERE on Flickr. Beautiful work!
and then there's the postcard I received from Thea!
Roses are RedThea is just new to our postcard group and oh she is going to make us stretch! This fabulous card, with it's 3D rose uses a few techniques I've only dreamed about. I will be having to give them a go now! Isn't it gorgeous, too??!! Check out one of Thea's blogs here and see some of the other wonderful creative projects that she has made - I love her CanCan Girls (A Pat Sloan challenge) she did.
What a wonderful mail day it was!
And, I've also been receiving some 3.5" blocks from the the Mini QT Flickr group I belong to. So far this is what I've got, with just two more to come. Checkout the link as this is a really fun creative group - I am amazed at some of the wonderful things they come up with!
I haven't just been receiving, although I think I'm coming out on the good end of that stick! I did make and post my May Flower postcards, but, seems I don't have a final picture of all of them, just this one that shows 5 of them in progress!
not sure why I don't have the sixth one in there? Oh well, if you go to the 4X6ers blog, you may be able to see pictures of them as they arrive.
And I also made and sent off my 8 blocks for the mini block swap
Black & White + OrangeThe 3.5" blocks aren't the only swap I'm doing right now with the Mini QT group - I'm also participating in the Black & White + One not square or rectangular mini quilt swap. This is my sneak peek on that!
I had fun figuring out how to piece this houndstooth pattern - those little blocks all finish at 1" sq. That's all you get for now - I have to get it finished and in the mail before I can show anymore!
AND then, of course, there's the Potholder Pass 3 - not quite finished those, but hopefully soon, and I'll get a picture of them before they are off!
Oh yeah, I've still got the Spring to Finish, OPAM and Say Cheese challenges that I'm working on - I don't think this month is nearly long enough!
Hope you are having fun and keeping busy!
