Seein' green.....


On our CQ for Newbies group, a round robin started that is for color study. The first color to be worked is green, so the participants were to piece a block using all green, then send them around to be embellished all in shades of green. This seemed rather hard to me, so I didn't join, but then got to thinking it might be a good exercise. So I did my own version. It was so much fun that I volunteered to work on a block for another stitcher, and this is it. It belongs to Carole in Arizona; she's in the official round robin, so this is her second block. That green and white thing is a vintage doily that I cut up; too bad I didn't think to take a picture before I started cutting. It had 4 round linen pieces that were joined by variegated green crocheted thread. I was able to use the rounded edges and the centerpiece. Carole is a professional crocheter, so I thought she'd appreciate the vintage doily.


Here's the full block finished.

And a close up of the spider web and green flower beads.

And here's Zack getting into my fabric.

Hi Janet,

Lucky Carole! The block looks great; I especially like the spider and web.

Is the stash-buster your grand-baby? He's sure a cutie.
