What I've been doing




I had my first CQ class Saturday and I was hoping to have something to show. She had us practice embroidery stitches on scrap fabric so I don't have anything on my block as of yet. This is going to be a little more difficult than what I anticipated. All the decisions such as what stitch to use, color choices and what to do to each section is what I'm finding hard.




I did get a bird bath painted. He's painted on a clay pot and saucer. I hope he doesn't scare the birds but I thought he was cute as heck. I did get a couple of things tatted but I only have a pic of one of them. Excuse the threads, I haven't hidden them yet. I'll post the other things I tatted at a later time.

Looking forward to seeing how you embellish your CQ square! The tatted medallion will certainly be a lovely addition!

The tatting is so pretty! I'm sure the CQ block will be just fine..when in doubt on colors...I go with shades of what is in my block fabrics. From you photo...I see cream/white...all pinks...all greens. Just mix and match! Don't over-think it! Just pick two you like that look okay laying on your block...and start stitching!! (Oh, and show us pictures of course!) Hugs, Kathy
