bren, no need to apologize, it's confusing, navigating around here.

   i have a  thread for each flower,   if you have done a flower that i haven't opened  a thread for,  you can start a new post with that flower.  just make the headings similar to the other flower headings in large letters so it can be found more easily.

  i post in both media and on the threads.   there's less chit-chat and media is in a different format so it is easier to scroll through the pictures.   in media, we just post as we go.  there are no headings except the ones you make for your individual picture. 

i hope this makes it more clear for you.   i want to emphasize you didn't do anything wrong, quite the contrary,  you've made and  posted a beautiful block.  i've done just a wee bit of tweaking and it's now living  with it's friends.

and bren,   i live  with both of my feet in my mouth, so  i didn't want to upset you, and  i wanted you to know why i was making loose with your picture and moving it about.

Gini no feet in mouth.  You didn't upset me.  I just am not quite sure how things are done yet.  You are welcome to move anything to its proper place.  I didn't even know you moved it.  Ha ha.  Hopefully I'll learn soon.

Bren - Your rose is AWESOME! Wonderful choice of fabric and how you got the shading in the right spots to make it look so real I can almost smell it!

here's a better picture for you linny,   i have to get the camera and the blocks together in the same place at the right time of day to get good pictures. i took the last one at night.

 

i just got the cutest little embroidery hoop that has a metal ring that snaps into a groove.  it works great for these little blocks. now that i have a hoop that fits them i will get more of the embroidery  done.

i think this is the cutest little flower.  we have wild ones in the woods here, they're rare.  gramma used to have a fairy lane on the hill behind her house.   there must have been a spring there because it was always damp with lots of moss.  we would find lady slippers there and violets.  i would lay for hours trying to spy a fairy.  gramma always know where to find me,  my uncle would come over the hill calling my name.   what in the world were they thinking, letting a 6 y o child go clear over the hill by herself.  it's a wonder i didn't get eaten by a cougar or carried off by a bear.   i probably always had a dog or two with me, but still?  over that hill i must have been a quarter mile from the house.   it was a different time, for sure.

Gini, that's the sweetest story.  Maybe that's where your sprite was born :)
