Something newely learned

As some of you ladies know that my dear friend Sheila(Sheilas Quild World) & I go to sewing each Wednesday with some other wonderful ladies who have become our dear friends. We have a terrific teacher Shelley who is a gifted sewer & dear friend. Some Weds. turn out to be Theropy sessions for one or several of us. It is one day in my week I can honestly say that I actually PLAN my week around. This Wed. my dearie Sheila showed my how to make this crazy block. She took fabric & all for me. O. K. now Sheila I AM HOOKED. I really enjoyed making it .& the best part is that WE did it together. Thanks  soo much. The little bird on the block is from a piece of my Moms  clothing & the thread  is one from my moms stash. Many years old. I know she is pleased with me making little things with her bits & pieces. Oh yes She loved birds. The bird sits on my kitchen window sill , so Mom is there doing the dishes with me always.. About 8 inches of snow arrived here today. HAPPY SPRING!! I am glad I could share this chatterings with you. Mom would be happy to have shared this with you as well. Till the the next chatter ladies. Take care. Blessings: Dianne.

  6. Hi Dianne,
    Sheila sent me over to check out your crazy block. I think it is very lovely! She does such a great job on her crazy blocks, that I think I really need to get started with one. I keep saying that to her, but so far, I am trying to get caught up with other projects. But one day a week, I should be able to put together a crazy block.
    I think you did so well on it and I love your fabrics you used:)
