Here is am update of my work on Linny's block.  I will send it when I can--right now my funds are low.  It will be soon Lillie.

I use Swarovoski  crystals on ribbon embroidery in the corner and added some harms and buttons. I couldn't get the picture to show the shine!  I hope you like it Linny!

Beautiful Diane. No rush, send when you can. I just ordered some silk 2mm and 4mm ribbon. I ordered combo packs since I really don't know what I need/want.  woo hoo!!!

Oh, Diane!  How beautiful! I can hardly wait to see it in person.  Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!  Those crystals are hard to photograph.  I couldn't get them to shine for me either.  But, I can imagine how pretty it looks with sunlight coming across it, throwing little sparklies all over everything.  I just love it.

Diane,

It's precious!  It's so dainty and girly just like Linny.   I think it's perfect.  I love the butterflies especially mainly cause I'm a nut for them.   I think your work is so amazing it's small size and neatness.

I decided to go with RibbonSmyth, one of the links on pages from the CAAB thread. IDK what brand it is. Probably not YLI. It's something to get me started and I can upgrade once I know what I'm doing and the colors I'd like to have in my stash.  lol

I went there myself last week and bought a collection of the "Moss" silk ribbon and a couple other things. It's a great site, isn't it?   

Robin,

Lillie's block is in the mail.

We all did good getting them sent out before the 1st!  Now it's my turn on yours. It's going to be fun with the seascape theme.
