A place to share with others - my love of needlework and Crazy Quilting which my daughter introduced me into some time ago.

This is Catherine'swork.

This is by Linda and I have resent the photo hoping that it is not as blurry as the first.

WHOOPS! I didn't mean to leave this out Viv, sorry. Yahoo left it out.
Please note the fantastic stumpwork onions on the top left.

The last one is mine. I did get a quick glimpse of them when Linda handed the blocks over, but I laid them aside for a few weeks and them worked on mine without looking at the others.

So you see that one almost-the-same set of blocks has ended with many different appearances.

Mystery block RR

Hi girls, I am about to load my Mystery blocks from a RR I was in last year. It came about because Linda Barraclough wondered aloud how the same look-alike blocks would be interpreted by each girl in a RR. I decided to challenge them. Each girl could work on one, without seeing other work completed until she finished her block for me. The worked ones, of course, were hidden in a bag. I sent 6 blocks, almost identical and I was to do the last one. Each block they made is absolutely beautiful. I am certain you too will think so. Maureen

Sandie's Victorian RR block

Here is Sandie's RR block in two sections as it's too wide for my scanner. I'm not speaking to my new camera, as after 1 1/2 days of use the batteries are flat and are not to be recharged. I can't get to town until the 21st to see about it.

Margaret, Maxine and Rosemary have worked on this lovely block and I finished my share today.

Pathfinder Block for Anne

I have been working on this block for the Pathfinders Quilt today and need only to add a dog charm. This block has no initial. I was inspired by a Brazilian heart of flowers and have tried a couple here. I have no idea how the original flowers were worked, but the large flower I made by laying twin rows of chain stitch and whipping them. I'm not sure if I created a new stitch combination LOL,when I made the yellow centres for the violet flowers. I put 3 x 14 wrap bullions very close together and wove them so they stand upright. I was pleased with the result.
