Woodlands, Forests RR

I am doing a CQinternational RR started by my friend Colleen. This is going to be so much fun! I had Pam`s block first and she had a great plan for hers. She wants the center flower to be highlighted by stitching all around it. I just finished my work and mailed it off to Cobi in the Netherlands.
I did the tree with all the roots under, then felted leaves for the branches. I wanted an owl for in my tree, but could not find one that fit, so the little squirrel moved in.

CQI Round Robin

I just finished working on this piece. I joined this swap to get back into round robin crazy quilting. I haven`t done any for awhile, and am happy to be stitching again.
I did the crocheted flower, and butterfly on top of the feather stitching that I did to match her colors. I also had this little squirrel and knew he would work perfect on a branch, so that was my other work on this piece.

I am doing the BOM on HGTV message boards. I am not a great piecer, when it comes to matching points. I like randomness. I even do my plants outside randomly. I planted bushes one time, came home from work, my husband had dug it up and planted it so they were in a straight line! OOPS, got off on a tangent there. lol
Anyway, this block is all about points, and I did it!! And wanna know I secret, I love the block.
So here it is,,

Latest Challenge Piece

This was our challenge for the last month, do a Self Portrait.
I tried two different ideas until I did this one, and am happy with everything except my zigzag stitching on the border. It was my first try at that, so will improve with time!! For all the challenge pieces, check out Challenging Ourselves link on the sidebar.

Look Out North Carolina!!

Today is all about packing, headed to NC tomorrow morning for a great retreat with over 80 of my online friends!! This is the fourth HGTV Circle Of Friends retreat.
Every year it is held in a different state. Some of our wonderful board members step up and agree to host. THEY do all the work, we descend upon them, and they are never the same!! lol
Classes, fun, eating, shopping, and this year sexy firemen are in my future. ha ha
I will explain the firemen when I get home. wink wink
I will get lots of pics, and spend lots of money on fabric, and other quilty things.
But it is only once a year, so you have to do that.
I can`t wait to see old friends, and put faces to others.
