Just stuff

This is my boy over the weekend when he was sick, and finally succumbed to sleep.
This is a GREAT!! imho pin. I just love it. It actually looks far more elegant than the pic shows. The diamantes are picking up the brown of the background. I am keeping this for my 6th Summer Breeze block, whaen it returns home. This was in a clearnace bin , by the way. It is about 3cm wide by 5 cm long.
And this is the progress on my 6th Tradewinds block. The ribbon I dyed myself. Perfect for this block. I have had a revelation with the DYB's. Because I get one back unembellished, for me to do, I can use all those 'special' things I am saving for that 'perfect' block. Case in point, the pin previously, and the cameo on this block, sent to me in a swap.

What a cutie! Bet you were glad when he finally conked out ;- )

That pin is gorgeous.

BTW, I love the work you did on Zandra's Halloween block. Halloween is my favorite holiday of all! Someday I'm going to do a H'ween crazy quilt.

Children are like cats in that they sleep in impossible positions. He is a darling looking little guy.

I lvoe this block. That "netting" on the bottom reminds me of clothing from times past - maybe it was Edwardian England? Gorgeous SRE bunch.

I love the pin you got in the clearance bin!

Victorian elegance? Very nice block, and I'd save the pin, too!

Your son is precious. It's so hard for them to give up the battle. Hope he's feeling better.
