Yahooie I'm tired but very happy as I've finally finished this bock and it'll be mailed off today too and hopefully in the hostess's hands before the end of October (safe and sound too)! This was a 12 inch block I had to crazy patch (some fancy fabrics and the bridal lace bottom left provided) and then totally embellish too ensuring beads etc were anchorded securely.
On this block I was trying to do it with a hoop but found my 8 inch was just too small and it was difficult to hold the hoop AND stitch!!!
OKAY back to my Making Memories block donation for my Crazy Quilting International (check out some of the awesome eyecandy the ladies have done)! Here I tried fabric manipulation, attaching bridal lace and other Venice lace appliques, added my own tatting pieces, and then embroidered the heck out of the block. Oh and I used the purchased leaves on stems that my girlfriend found for me - Thank You very much Shirley!!! I tried to outdo my past embroidery attempts by adding the dimensional carnation - I LOVE it!!!
