This is a block from the Birds and Bees round robin which will be ending in June. This was Lyn's block. She wanted us to plant her garden.
the fence had already been done by the prior person, and I added the sunflower behind the fence and the crow.

I did the coneflowers, and added a little hummingbird charm, and a little sign that I could not get the picture to show, but it reads "My Garden"

This is the whole block.


Another round robin I worked on was Lisa's under the sea block. I did this entire block. Part of the seaweed I had some funky yarn/thread which I crocheted a single chain stitch and tacked it down.

I really had a good time with this block, of course it is one of my favorite subjects.

Lisa had all her blocks in the shape of shells, and is planning to assemble them into a fabric book. I really loved her idea.


I have been pretty busy the last couple of weeks with round robins. This is a landscape RR that I am working on, and this was Debbie's block. I was the first one to work on this one, and I added the tree and the stitching so far on this block. I don't know how to get rid of this underlining

I have recently been working on Candi's block, as part of a round robin my small group of friends
participate in. I was the last person working on this block and this is the section I worked on.
I did the purple and green around the lady silkie.

This is a closeup of the cone flowers. I really liked how they came out.

This is the block, ready to go back to Candi.


In the past month or so, I have received some "interesting mail" as my mail lady Victoria says
after she fondles my packages. I have ordered and received some wonderful packages.
First, I have ordered some of Rengin's oyas shown below.

I have already put most of these turquoise ones on some CQ blocks, and I am hoping I can order more. Rengin sells her work on Etsy, and on Artfire. I just love her work, and am looking forward buying more.

I also purchased and received some of Sharon B's beutiful hand-dyed threads on her Artfire store. They stitch beautifully. I took a picture somewhere, but cannot locate it now.

And I also bought and received Jo's lovely photo seam book called Seams Like Fun, with lovely seam treatments. Jo's Etsy store is here. Right now she also has some pincushions listed.

As I mentioned previously, I am participating in Pat Winter's Pieces of Friendship puzzle piece swap. I finished my last 2 pieces last night, and these are heading out to Pat today.

These are all 4 of my pieces set together.
