Jan's block

Nancy, NP asked what the words on this block said.

It says:
Grand Master
Flor de Washington
Reina Perfecta
Extra Fina
Blue Gap

I am not sure whether these were cigars or what.

Surpise, Project Finished

Last week, I received a wonderful surprise gift from my friend Ms. Jan. It is a CQ block, it looks like it is all 1 piece of fabric, but has lovely feather stitches around each of these words. She said she got 2 of these about 10 years ago, and has 1 framed, and has given me the second one. This was the best part of my week, this wonderful surprise.

I have been trying to get things going for Christmas gifts. I remembered, in 2003, in Sisters, Oregon, I took a class with Margaret Peters, a cute little wool Santa wallhanging project. I meant to finish it last year for my sister, but didn't get to it. I remembered it again last week, and pulled it out, and discovered I was about 3/4 done. So I finished it up tonight. It is OK for me to show it here, my sister doesn't have a computer and she will never see this.

Since my last post, I have been cruising from Vancouver to San Diego, visited MIL in San Diego, and gotten home again and back to work.

Yesterday, had a wonderful visit with Susan Nixon, Fran Regos and Candi Harris.

This is a garden round robin I am in with Susan, Fran, Moira, and Gail and this is Fran's block.

This is actually the second round on this block, and the first round, I had done the fence embroidery, the tree above it, and there is a ribbon seam between them.

This round I did the seam below Susan's spider web, and a hard to see wreath beside it.

I was able to show the girls this block yesterday, before I mail it off to Gail today. The girls' visit yesterday was the highlight that topped off my birthday week!
