Today I got in the creative mood and went to the sewing room to start something new. I started this CQ block yesterday and finished it up today. I need to finish the handsewing the one black piece down, I have wanted to start a black and white block for some time. I want to embellish it with pink. I need a CQ challenge block for CQI for the year so I am going to use this one and some others I plan to start with the monthly challenges that will be similar to it.
Then I starting thinking that I wanted to make some ATCs. I have made a couple but have never been really happy with the way they turned out. So today I dug out the info (from the internet of course) and pieced two and then started the other with a piece of silk that I want to try to embellish. They all are ready for hand work. CQ4Ns talked about an ATC swap so maybe with some work I will be ready to get into it.
I have another block to get started for a swap on CQI a first timers block. So that will be my next challenge. I still want to work on more black and white blocks, so I am not sure what I will do for that block.
My blog is a place for me to journal, add things I have made, connect with other bloggers, sewers, CQers, doll makers.
