I joined months ago the Orange You Glad Bee, and I fancied that I would design my own blocks for my turn.
The gal whom was to have January had to leave the group and myself and a couple of others were asked if we could take it. No-one had responded and I sadly suffer for Taurus guilt. I couldn't let the group down! So I volunteered to take it. I then went straight to work to design my blocks as my month was June or July, I had time. Hm, No longer! But I got them done, all my blocks were sketched, my Wonder Under was cut, fabric was ordered, but then I ran into a major snag. CHRISTMAS! Rrrrr Darn Christmas! None of my fabric got to me until a few days ago. I had to scrap my whole project and come up with something I could do with what I had.
Here are some pics of the blocks I created. They are all applique blocks, and I want to embellish with buttons, embroidery, ribbon and what ever turns my fancy.
I was thinking if any of your are interested - we could make this together. I could email you the block pattern, we could do one a month, and post picture of the them on a Flickr group. What do you think? Want to play with applique and embellishments with me? Let me know with a comment. Even if just one person wants to play, I will gladly share and make my blocks with you.
