I SWEAR I wasn't going to do this...
As if I haven't got enough stitching projects to last me into the next ten lifetimes! I've admired Pam Kellogg's CQs for ages, and then found more to drool over on other blogs, but decided I would not even THINK of doing one myself. Not enough time. My embroidery skills are too basic. But then I joined the Take A Stitch Tuesday group on Stitchin Fingers as you know if you've been reading my blog for more than 3 weeks. And I've discovered how much fun I can have experimenting with different ways of doing those basic stitches. What's the most fun way those experiments can be used? On a Crazy Quilt block of course. Sharon H. showed me how to get started on Thursday. Well, she did most of it, then when I got home I played some more. Here it is, ready for embellishments in the form of stitches, beads and buttons. Lucky I'm going to the Quilt & Craft Fair in a few weeks (not so lucky for the credit card though...)
