Moira's block, RR Vest

This was Moira's block I recently finished. I added a feather stitch on the left side of the kitty on the purple strip, and on the gold/orange strip I added a 2-color I think cretan. Both of these seams were done using the Sassa Lynne thread Susan Nixon has been getting.

In 1998, I was in a vest RR with a group of ladies, and this was my ocean vest I pieced. I still get compliments when I wear it. The ladies that worked on my vest fronts did such a good job.

We are getting ready to take off for a short cruise and I am taking this with me.

Susan's Garden RR block

This round, I found some nifty leaves at a scrapbook shop and added that, and made some Mokuba ribbon flowers. I also added some scallops above the picture, but they are hard to see.

Susan wanted to know what the inside of my jewelry roll looked like, and it is really simple,just pockets but it looks like this:
