Still working on my block for class even though the class is over! I added more stitching and motif. Posted by Picasa

Very nice. :)

I'm still waiting for you to back up the camera a bit and show off the whole thing... lol

I love your use of all the buttons. I have some warped (but genuine) mother of pearl buttons that were rejects from a button factory. Looking at all your work is motivating me into thinking about using them as embellishment somewhere.

Thanks! I'm glad you are going to give buttons a try. I think they really add to blocks.

You really are seeing almost the entire block. I'll see what I can do about getting the whole block in the picture next time I take pics.

I think that your block has a calm and serenity about it Karen... As much as I really like the 'over the top' CQ I really appreciate a block such as yours which gives the beholder a chance to 'breathe' and take in each aspect of the beautiful work... Your execution of each of the seam treatments is just lovely - so even and uniform -this is the type of work I aspire to be able to do eventually... sharonb's classes really opened up a whole new world for me and I look forward to doing more... If I ever get within doing half as good as you I will be a happy CQer...
