My block in progress

It's early Saturday morning and this is a picture of my DYOB in progress.As we have a workshop today and tomorrow I'm going to do the rest of the block on Sunday evening.Looking forward having some stitching houres in the end of this weekend.Next week I'm going to have some vacation days I really need as this time a year the days are warmer and brighter but at work we have a lot of work to do.So some houres of walking can do very much and of course some meetings with friends and family are something very very nice too.

Rosemary's DYOB

I really can't decide what to place below the heart so by the time it goes there may something added or I'll send a choice with the block for whoever gets it to decide.

Gayle's Swap Block

Here's my block to be swapped. I'm not sure I really like all of it, but it was fun to experiment with some new ideas.

The first stitches on my DYOB

Dear all

The first stithes are done on my bloch in silk.I used silk thread,cotton thread and beads in a pattern combination.Of course I use tattings too.
