When I pieced this block I was worried that I would have trouble with the colours but now that it is finished I am really happy with it.
With this layout it is a bit of a challenge but I found that I can use bigger motifs and buttons that I normally wouldn't use on the smaller pieced blocks.
I have wanted to use Cross stitches on my blocks before but I could not get them even so this time I used waste canvas and stitched over it and then removed it when I was finished.
Earlier this year I purchased Pam Kellog's e-book on seam treatments and this is how she is able to get such wonderful embellished seams.
I must use it more often now that I have started.
I'm not going to show you my room (as Sharon asked us to do) because I went to all the trouble at the beginning of the year when Sharon started this years challenge and I cleaned it up and tossed a lot of stuff out but I am ashamed to say that it is just as bad again I haven't purchased much but everyone keeps sending me lovely stuff (and I love it)and my friends in Canberra know what a bower bird I am ------Why can't I say thanks but no thanks.
Ah well I think I am too old to change my ways anyhow.
