This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Photo shows my block for the Hurricane Katrina fund-raising quilt "All That Jazz".

Birds a'flying Cream Block completed

Two of the Victorian Symbolism Challenges with the CQInternational group were Birds a'flying (April) and Friendship Rings (May).  I managed to put both of these symbols on the one Cream on Cream block while at the same time working on the Christmas block which has the mini-monthly challenge of "Chains" on the Christmas Tree.  So while I haven't blogged any blocks for a while, I have been working on them both and am about to start the May mini-challenge of "Stripes".  This block is number fourteen - only 82 to go now and so far, I'm not getting bored, touch wood!!!

I always love it when I see you have blogged, I know there will be some inspiration there for me.
I loved the fish and this is also perfect.
Good to know that you are still going strong, sometimes I find it hard to get going again after a while of not stitching. Have had so much going on lately can't wait to get clear and finish my Red Block

What a work of art you are creating with these cream on cream blocks, Viv. Each block is beautiful by itself - I just can't imagine 100 all together. It might make my heart stop!
Hugs,
Kerry
