Lynn Osse's Block Unicorn Group

I belong to a Fairytale Round Robin and this is Lynn Osse's block, Rapunzel. It's a lovely block:) So far Judi Shipley and I have worked on it. You can see Rapunzels gorgeous hair and braid that Judi put on it using a gold/yellow metallic floss. Isn't it wonderful! We both did a couple of seam treatments and I did the "rampion", the veggie that Rapunzels mother was dyeing for when she was pregnant. I won't tell you anymore of the story, if you haven't read it since you were a child, read it again, it's a great story:) This block will be on it's way to Gerry Hookstra tomorrow. Thank you Lynn I had so much fun! (PS..I'm posting another photo of the block, this is only half of it. My scanner takes a better close up view that's why it's this way:) )

ECQ Block

Here's the pic's of my block, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :) Should I take out the varigated thread on the feather stitch? It kind of stands out like a sore thumb, huh? Also the half wheels I'm not at all happy with either...THANK YOU

Anita's Heart for Newbies Swap

I decided to take time out from the TAST and Encrusted Crazy Quilting (since I was "stuck" anyway) and finish the heart for Anita. We're having a one on one Newbie Heart Swap in my Hand Embroidery group and Anita Edmonds is my partner. I hope you like it Anita, the photo didn't come out as well as I'd hoped. The black is velvet, the center is red, gold, on black glittery fabric, and the gold is a metallic (sp?). Now I feel like I'm back on track a little with my embroidery so I'll go back to work on the TAST and my ECQ Block:) Have a great week end ladies:)

Well I've been playing catch up by carrying my sewing with me. I'm putting the stitches (only a short row of each) on some aida to scan. I'm enjoying the whole process, between the TAST and Sharon's Encrusted Crazy Quilting class:)

Encrusted CQ Block class 2

First I'd like to say Thank You to all of the notes of sympathy and support I received during this past week or so. It's been extremely hard to deal with losing my brother and I know it's going to take time to get back to some kind of norm. I can't say thank you enough times it meant a lot to know there are so many wonderful ladies I get to learn from and share with:)
I made an attempt today to get back on task with my block. It seems I did more "taking out" than I did "putting in" with my stitching. But that's ok, I did make some headway and that felt pretty good:) I've had a chance to visit some of your blogs and WOW comes immediately to mind! The work I'm seeing is gorgeous!!!
I hope I can do half as good as what I've seen and I'll be thrilled! :)
Sharon you're in my prayers (you have been since I saw your post about needing the surgery) and I hope all went well and you're back with us soon. FEELING GOOD!:)
Again thank you everyone for all your support:)
Big Big HUGZ:) to all!
