crazy block

Another month has come so here is my block for the CQJP challenge for august. Think I might have been a little lazy with this  time, the centre flower is a little crochet flower and down in the bottom left hand corner was something i attempted on the embellishing machine  (can only improve). Only 4 left to do now hen will have to get the thinking cap on as to what to do with them all. There are a couple of Sharon`s stencil patterns here, a beaded dragonfly and of course more little bits of tatting. Over all I am quite pleased with it.


 It is also time for 3 more Tula Pink blocks. These are nos 31, 32 and 33.

Hi Margaret , thanks for your visits on my blog. I have to say I like your block with aquamarine shades as for the little dragon fly is so very cute. The pin cushions are gorgeous in special the star ones and the little biscornu.
Hugs

Margaret, I love your crazy quilt block--especially that beaded dragonfly! I love the tatting too. I really want to learn to tat someday. How big is your block? I'm going to a frind's this weekend tolearnhow to peice a crazy lock and I keep vacillating about the best size. I was thinking 6 inches would good, but maybe 8" blocks would easier to embellish. What have you found?

Nice work, Margaret!
I can see that Sharon's cq stencils have been out to play. I think you should have a piece of tatting on every block; it is so much YOU.
The patchwork blocks are looking good.

Dear Margaret, I see your comment on Nana's Nähwelt. Is there no "Heart Pillow Project" in your neighbourhood. Because on the German Webside (https://sites.google.com/site/herzkissenindeutschland/home) you only can get all information in German language. Here is the link to the side in Denmark: http://www.heartpillow.dk/ Have a look. My English ist not so good. I hope this was helpful for you. (My Blog: http://herzkissenhamburg.blogspot.de/)
