Opam and update on my crazy quilt block

Good evening from sunny Nova Scotia , yes the sun is actually shining and although a bit breezy is a lovely evening and looks a bit more like spring . Maybe just maybe it really is going to happen this year .
 So I am a tad late reporting for March for Opam , sorry Kris.  I had seven finishes all of which I spoke about here .  They included two tea towels , a mug rug , banner , pillow and wall hanging . I have been busy since then but no finishes.
 I just completed task #7 for my crazy quilt block.  My lack of threads makes it a tad challenging to get the look I wish to have.  I have tons of DMC floss but I don't care for the look it creates on this block although I have used some . I am pleased how it is coming along , I even added a few beads today , have to say I am not a bead person , I prefer things plain  but I am here to learn so I will do as the teacher says lol .


. So I am plugging along with this as well as my BOM Quilt,  making progress slowly but surely there .
 That's all my news for now , thanks so much for stopping by today,  sure loved seeing you .
 Hugs Sheila

  3. Your delphiniums turned out beautifully along the seam. I was not sure about beading either but I kept the beads simple and not too blingy so that they just added texture. I agree about the DMC threads too. I love to use size #8 perle threads. Great progress since your last photos.

  16. Very pretty Sheila. I love beads but always struggle with adding them to things as I can't figure out how to make them look good. I think the ones you have added look great.
