Encrusted CQ - Lesson one
This is lesson one of Sharon's class. I've put together my block and added some trims. I tried to keep the colors and fabrics to a minimum because I want the embellishments to be the focus of the block. I kept adding different fabrics, but they just didn't look right to me. I've done all the stitching by hand (I do have a sewing machine, but really dislike using it.) That's one of the things I like about CQ is that it can be done mostly by hand.
So now that this is done I will spend some time pleasure reading. I bought a book titled "for one more day", by Mitch Albom. I've heard it's a fantastic book and it is just beautiful outside. A little on the warm side, but I will sit on the patio and relax and read for awhile.
