A member of one of my CQing groups recently had a heart attack, and I made this block for her. She apparently likes Victorian style and slate blue. I found this little silkie of a very Victorian couple in my stash, and pulled the embellishment colors from the colors in the silkie. The gimp trim is hand-dyed, as are the lace leaves. The flowers on the leaves are some buttons.
In the same group we're doing a block swap with a cat or dog theme. I found a card with the cute little girl and her puppies on it and made myself a silkie.
For the first time in his life, instead of dreaming he was chasing rabbits, Jaxon dreamed he WAS a rabbit....and it felt so right.
