No. 2 (hearts) is so lovely but I think it would be more awesome in a one colour for the whole trim. This I found to large for the item I wanted it for so am going to try reducing the number of chains on my next one. Will try and show the difference when completed.
No. 13 was a little big but just fit in so I continued with it and I think I agree with my sister that sometimes varigated threads just detract from the design.
But I did this in the colours of the CQd block and it does look nice with the pearls stitched on afterwards.
So that's another CQd block done and this one is in record time - like 3 days after it was received!!! WOW!!! Definitely a FIRST for me! So it'll be in the mail earlier than necessary but with Canada Post's usual 2-week delivery to and from the USA for me I figure it's nice to give the next person within my RR a break.
