http://www.ribbonsmyth.com/2004_finished_blocks.htm These are two of my blocks from this series. They were meant to be made into a kimono, but for some reason, I didn't get my blocks the correst size. I loved everything to do with them, so I decided to make them into smaller hangings. I am really pleased with the finished products. I have made an other hanging with 2 other blocks that go really well together but the last two blocks are the ones that are odd shapes. Not too sure what to do with them at this point. Think I may just trim them up and make an other hanging. Vickie has stopped the embellishment clubs for the time being.

This picture may be too dark to see it very well. It is two RR's I was in with my Crazy Gathering mates. The bottom one was the Bead RR that Karen South posted lots of pictures off
http://karensouth.blogspot.com/The top one is the Victorian Tea Party block that my Dear Friend Judy organised. http://creationsbyjudy.blogspot.com/ I love these two blocks even if they are akward shapes. They, or at least the first one didn't, it was meant to be portrait, but somewhere along the line was transmorphed to landscape, hence making the other one the same. I have finally ( an other ufo) made them into a wall hanging. Just need to make some kind of cord to hang it. Don't you just love getting those UFO's finished? Quite often they don't take too much time either. Why oh why do we do it?????

My WOW Block

I don't know what I am doing wrong but this picture keeps loading the wrong way up!!! It is on its side, you can tell by the beautiful face that Juliette made, poor thing is lying on her side. Anyway, I just don't know how to rearrange the photograph, bah humbug.
Isn't it beautiful? Some of my friends from Crazy Gatherings worked on this. Now desisions time, what to do with it? Any ideas anyone?

This is the block I started for Sharon's last class "encrusted crazy quilting" a finished ufo, Yahoo, only several dozen to go. The class was a big learning curve for me and I am looking forward to the next one "personal library of stitches"

Finshed Cafe Au Lace Block.

This was what I was working on when I started this blog. It was going to be the first of several. Didn't quite make it, but on the positive side, this one did get finished!!! Hows that for the glass being half full instead of half empty.!!!!!!I finished it in January, just found a picture of it when I was trying to tidy things up on the computer. It was made into a cushion for a Dear Friends birthday.

I have been finishing a few other UFO's but just can't seem to get a good picture of them, have asked DS if he would take some tomorrow.

I have been doing some changes on my blog today and have spent ages trying to recover my password!!!!! I even wrote it down would you believe, phewey. Must just have been a typo. Hopefully it is all sorted out now.

This is an other button, these are fun to work on and fairly quick being all of 2 inches.

I have had a busy weekend, gardening and lots of other domestic duties. Have also had another go at making soap, had a try 3 years ago, not with the greatest successthough. The soap was ok but does need some tweaking. I will try to blog the journey of my soap making adventures. Made 3 batches today, the first one is a recipe I got from About.com soap. The 2nd two from an ebook I bought today of the net. They have to be left for 24 hours before cutting, so we will see what tomorrow brings.

This wow RR has been such fun, stitching without green has been a challenge but at the same time interesting to see what we could come up with. I have got to say how much I like the white on white (cream etc) there is an elegance about them, a beauty all their own, they have become a favourite. I enjoy RR's finding it easier to do work on someone elses block rather than my own work.

I HAVE TO APOLOGISE TO PAT, Pat I am so sorry for calling you Pat Winer. You are not a winer Dear Friend, far from it. I checked the post before sending it but obviously not well enough. All credit to Pat, even after calling her !!!!!!! and telling my deepest darkest secret she is still calling me a lady. How is that for a friend? You are the bestest Pat.
I am also racking my brains to think of 4 more weird things. Even asked DH and my eldest son and still haven't come up with any. What a boring old so and so I am, not giving up just yet, the weirdness is there, honest, and when I get my menopausal memory back I will be able to enlighten.

This is one of my button covers for the competition over at Silk_Ribbon_Heirlooms@yahoogroups.com
The button is about my son Callum (see earlier entry) the heart is for my heart, his name is Gaelic and means Dove . His nickname was "Pink" and the Dove is holding a pink tear.
The competion is a great idea for me as it makes me do something.

My Dear Friend Pat Winer has tagged me, as everyone can see I have not been here in a long while but have been thinking everyday of returning. So thank you for that , and thanks also for calling me a lady, me a lady!!!!! I don't think so, just ask my kids, they would tell you a few home truths. But really Pat I am so flattered that I am sitting here smiling, almost!!!!!! I said almost, believing I might be a lady, well I know I am female so that is a start.
I can't think of 5 things at the moment but I will tell you the worst as it comes to mind without any bidding. Sorry, this is not nice so you may want to start reading an other blog at this stage.
Here goes,
as I am getting older and things don't work as well on the inside I get flatulence. It is most disturbing as it comes out at the most inopportune moment. Like the other day I was talking to one of my eldest sons friends who I hadn't seen for a long while and I sneezed and out it popped. Pat talks abouth going red when she was little. I have always done that too and was a red beakon at that moment. There nothing else can shock like that. As for the others I will think on those as I have to go work now.
Just popped in a photo of a the WOW round robin that I am in and is just finishing.
So nice to be back on deck
