Some CQ work....and a blast from the past....

Here is Ing's fall swap block. I did the pine bough down the center (mainly because I wanted to try cast-on stitch pine cones), the SRE bouquet, the leafy vine, two seams, and added some beads.

This is Wendy's block from the Fantasy Landscape round robin. Her theme is "Undersea Dragon's Lair", and she asked that all creatures added be fantasy creatures, so I made her a sea unicorn daddy and his babies (click on the pic for a larger view to see the babies; they are glorified, modified lazy daisy stitches!). I also did the kelp seam above his head and the seam that goes to the left of him and behind his head.

I'm not entirely sure when this picture was taken. Probably about 1972 or '73. That's me on the left, my sister Barbara kneeling, and sister Gayle on the right. The dog is Gayle's St. Bernard, Shannon. She was a lovely dog, very well trained. She had actually been trained not to drool, though she could still slime you pretty well after a drink of water.

Love the seahorse babies. I couldn't see these on the pic in our folders. Is the seahorse wool?

What a GREAT seaunicorn (clever idea!). And the babies are clever, too. These just made me smile - thanks!!! Hugs, Cathy
