Special Addition

After having tatted a couple of pieces I thought I could use on my CQ block they all wound up in my pile of "what am I going to do with these" pile. Nothing I tatted seemed to work on this block for me. When TattingChic blogged about Tat Like An Egyptian I made a comment that the little pink heart she tatted would look perfect on my CQ block. She was kind enough to send me her little pink heart and I just love it! I would post a link to her blog but I don't know how but I'm sure if you google TattingChic you will be able to find her blog. She's very creative with her writing and a very talented lady. Thank you so much TattingChic for sharing with me! I think the little heart tatted in Egyptian thread looks great on my first CQ block.
Thanks for stopping by.

Your block looks so pretty! I'm glad the heart worked out well with it!

Oh, hey, if you ever would like me to explain the link thing to you I'll be very happy to! It's really easy!! I promise. :)

I like the tatted heart. I recently got a couple of pieces of tatting to try on my CQ and am having trouble deciding how and where to use them.

Your block is gorgeous! I think the pink heart she sent you is just what you needed to get over that hump of what to do next. I know I wasn't much help. I love everything you've done so far and you should be very proud of your block, it doesn't look like a first CQ block to me. I know you haven't sewn a stitch in, well I won't say how many years but a long time. It looks like you've been doing this forever.

Thank you for the comment you left on my blog just now! I look forward to the finished block! YAY!

That's your first block??? Looks great! I've ordered some silk ribbon from a buy-in on the hgtv boards, as well as some cq fabric. One of these days maybe I'll be able to post a pretty little square. You're an encouragement. :)
