Because I am not allowed to show some photos from what i am sewing, I'll post some photos from one of my favorite flowers in our garden.
They are so delicate and i like those colors so much, all the shades of pink. From dark magenta to almost white.
I stitch and embellish four block from a swap called "half on half swap".
I sewed 2 blocks half pink, half purple and 2 blocks half red, half blue.
I received 4 blocks back to embellish.
But we are not allowed to show them because it is a contest too.
So, you have to wait a month or so and I publish what I have done on 4 blocks for quilt-friends in this group.

This block is made for Beverly Ann.
She is making a crazy quilt with the theme "Orient".
I have added some Japanese looking flowers.
In the lower left corner I have made flowers which I have copied from the heart Hideko made for me.
I think they turned out pretty well.

Last week I was busy to create a paisley bauble bag. I didn't now what it was but mine turned out this way.
It is a typical crazy patchwork bag, the measure is 7" high and the bottom has a diameter 5".
It is a "lottery" swap project in the newbies group.
There were not many rules, the only one was that you must have a paisley motif on it.
I think it's turned out rather pretty.

This heart is made for a little girl in Australia, Tayla.
Her mother makes the most beautiful hearts and Tayla has sewn her firsts hearts too.
The little mermaid is made to encourage her.
It is a gift because I have got such a beautiful heart from her Mom.

Isn't she adorable?
