Here's the latest block I worked in the Jewels on Black round robin. This one belongs to Rita in Kansas. The butterfly lace motif is one I dyed at the retreat in October. I used size 8 perle cotton for most of the stitching, except for the yellow roses, which are size 5.
We're just beginning the For the Birds RR. I fussy-cut bird motifs out of the leftovers of my new kitchen curtains, then pieced around them using cream on cream cotton prints and a batik print. The plan (and yes, I do have one this time) is to make a smallish wall hanging for the kitchen or dining room.
