Flowers and secret blocks





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.

Birds.........



All the birds I made for swapping are flown to an other country.
I decided to make a few more.
Maybe they will stay a little longer at my place.
Just now I don't see them in the garden but during the winter this species fly around the house.

A new crazy block


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 picture bauble bag


This is the last picture from the bag, you have to scroll down to see them all.

Paisley bauble bag






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.

the music goes on......


This is the fifth Betty, I hope I can swap it with a Betty Boop fan.
Two more to embroider.

I made a dragon fairy today for having an alternation.
I have made the ciggy myself.
Not too bad I think.

the little Mermaid


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.
