Crazy blocks...

Here are three crazy quilt blocks.  My friend SheilaSheilas Quilt World) showed me how to do one. Sooo hIere are the ones I have made so far.I need to do   more embellishing I can see. I only did some stitches & buttons. I guess the more blocks I do the better I will feel to add MORE. I did enjoy making them very much, Thanks Sheila...It has been a beautiful day here in Nova Scotia, sunny & warm.HORRAY!!!. Again , thanks for stopping in to see me & my little ALMOST finishes. D.

A stitchery

This stitch is  one i really like but for the life of me I can not remember which blog it comes from. I am thinking The Painted Quilt. I love this blog I am motivated by Kaarens lovely work. The little bird is a picture frame. I embroidered my inital in it, as I did one for my two sisters as well. I used white linen from an old tablecloth of my moms. It is soo soft a easy to stitch with.  I could not figure out how to turn this pic around... sorry. I'm away again. Blessings: D.

New Projects

Here are a few things I have been working on. The pictures above of the two little bunnies were from a magazine. I just thought they were soo cute & tiny. A good pair for a small space              The next photo is of a wool wall hanging that I made . I am still trying to decide how to finish the outer edges. It is a pleasure for me to work with wool. My mother loved daisies so I will think of her when I look at it. I just noticed that this piece is in a busy spot... all my other lovies all around. BUT that's me , things I treasure EVERYWHERE. If you can  get close to this piece you will see a tiny little angel (left side) I made my mom YEARS ago. A little  silk flower turned into a treasure.  I will do another (look & see) a little later on. I hope you will come back to see me. Blessings: Dianne.
