2014 March Little Treasures BOM

2014-LT03Can I just say how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this months block. I love it.. simply put. I really went all out on this block this month and created quite a few dimensional effects.

From the double bows, to the hair, the leaf, the tulips and I even used multi-colored threads instead of my normal invisible thread when I applied the shapes to the block.

Today’s notes about this block are pretty short and sweet as I’ve put everything in the pdf file that you need to create this block. However, I left a few things to place on the site as well.

Let’s get to the nitty and the gritty, you want the download.. ūüôā Yes?

Working In Heavily Drawn Areas of EQ

Working In Heavily Drawn Areas of EQHello and Welcome,

I was working on the next block design for Fridays Faces when I realized I could do a lesson for you on working in heavily drawn areas of EQ. I had created a video back in December for this, but never uploaded it, and when I rewatched it I realized I don’t do that anymore, I prefer to move the lines. This video shows you how I do that. Enjoy!!

and see, if you take a look at the video, you’ll see a preview of Fridays Faces coming for February 28, 2014. Next tuesday also brings Little Treasures 03. Cya Soon!!

I will miss you mom!!

Sheila

My mother passed away yesterday, she was an inspiration that lit my life in various ways. She loved to crochet, to embroider, and cross stitch. She could do anything with her hands. She could also use a machine, I so remember the time she made my sister and I Barbie doll clothes when we were young. I’ve never attempted anything so small like that. She made many beautiful projects that my sister and I will treasure forever. She gave everything she made away, that is how generous she was.

There were many times in my life when she came to my rescue. She was a good person with a good heart and in her final years, while she had suffered with Diabetes, she still stayed strong and fought to live. I guess it was the stubborn part of her that just didn’t want to say good bye to life.

I know you’ve gone to heaven, and your pain and suffering is now over. Your life will live on in the memories we have of your life, your spirit and your generosity. ¬† I will miss you.

Little Treasures 2014 BOM – February

Little Treasures 2014-February¬†She is done and ready to go up. I’d like to apologize, I had every intention of having this up on Tuesday morning, but it’s been an endless bed of headaches for the last week or so. My internet was down several days last week, the dog we are looking after this past week chewed up my original sample block and I had to recreate this one over the weekend. Then, after taking all the pictures, for the lesson part of the block, I took the flash card out and it was locked. Has anyone ever had this happen? Did you get it to unlock? If so, please, please, please tell me how you did it.

So, I had to redo all the pictures again on Monday, which meant rewriting the pdf file as well. Soooo she will be up sometime on Friday along with Facebooks next Friday’s Faces series. ¬†Again, my sincerest apologies.
