Narrowing in

I'm getting to the end of Block # 2 in the courtship series and hopefully will finish it today.  Here's the latest bits I've added...

 Above is a fairly easy seam treatment...
just a chain stitch vine, silk ribbon leaves,
and some sparkly plastic flowers.

Below, double fly stitch leaves,
some rice pearl beads, and
some other beads I found in my stash.

Your quote today comes from an anonymous source..."The first to apologize is the bravest.  The first to forgive is the strongest.  The first to forget is the happiest"


  1. Very pretty:) Thanks for the links.

  2. This block is looking lovely, as well. You say "simple seam", I say "but so lovely". I clicked on the link for the transfer interesting method. Happy stitching!

  3. Very nice! I do like bling :). Thanks for the links

  4. You have a lovely collection of beads and other treasures!

  5. Love the buttons and sparkly flowers. It must be quite exciting looking in your stash to find all the bits and pieces!

  6. You are so clever not only with all your work but with the ideas you find - love the 'I give you my heart', I wish I could quickly whip one up!!! Thanks for your fabulous contributions to my posts through your comments, they have made me smile and warmed my heart this week.
    Have a happy week - this is my last in Australia for a while!

  7. Beautiful embellishing!
    I like the crocheted fan bookmark too.
    The quote is a good one, forgiveness is freedom.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
