About a year ago, we had a round robin at CQForNewbies and my block was a Mardi Gras one. It has finally made its way back home and isn't it gorgeous? I forgot my paper that had everyone's name that worked on it so I'll have to edit this later, but I'm totally in love with how this turned out.
Look at this seam treatment. And the feathers on the charm are dyed. Sorry for the glare, but these are silk/fancy fabrics and they are hard to photograph. And more close ups:
My little Maddie cat has been sickly. Seems she has an internal parasite. Since she's an indoor cat, the vet thinks she got it from eating flies. Yep, she's quite the fly catcher (and eater). Now we get to take mega doses of an antibiotic for 13 days and hope that our next sample comes back clear. Meanwhile, she's very droopy (very un-Maddie-like) and she decided the priority mail box that came yesterday was the best place to nap.
