The day is dull , the sky is grey and there is a threat of rain , the air is very damp so I wasn't planning on venturing out UNTIL I seen the flag up on our mailbox at the end of the driveway . You see I am expecting some mail , postcards, and this package that arrived today ,oh how excited I was and couldn't get back to the house fast enough to tear open the package , and tear I did . This is what was inside .
Jeanette who I have been friends with for many years now and we have taken part in many RR's together , a sweetheart of a person . Jeanette added some sweet buttons that she bought just for my block , see the teapot and cup and then on the left are some cupcake buttons , how cute are they . Jeanette is a master at embroidery so lots of embellishments with some addition of lace and rickrack to set it off , I love it Jeanette .Thanks :-)
Lynda from BC , we also have been swap partners in RR's together , which always included Jeanette as well , my walls have many lovely wall hangings as a result of their fine work. Lynda's block includes some more sweet charms , where do they find these ? Lynda also did some ribbon embroidery , gorgeous bead work and lots of embroidery and the fabrics are so cute , one little mouse serving tea , a folk lady in the garden tending her flowers . Just beautiful Lynda , thanks , I love it!
Dianne , Dianne and I are more like sisters than friends and she knows just what I like so this block is perfect , look at all the work she did , Dianne is the queen of embellishments , the flowers in the center she did some embroidery on the petals and I think perhaps also did some shading to enhance them even more , she added lots of embroidery of sweet little purple flowers , a pink heart , some bead work and a piece of what appears to be antique crocheted lace and of course some buttons ,she knows how much I love buttons. Thanks so much Dianne I love it !!
Each and every one of these blocks is extra special to me and now I have the task of deciding just what to do with them , Dianne had thought she would make a bed runner with her blocks and I was going to copy her plan until I seen my blocks today , I don't think a tea party would make a good bed runner so I suspect this will either become a table topper or a small wall hanging for my dining room , either way I will always cherish it and think of each and every one of you when I look at it so thank you all again from the bottom of my heart , it sure made this dull day bright and sunny for me :-)
Hope you enjoyed my little crazy patch show and tell as much as I did in sharing it , thanks for stopping by.
