    I'm excited by the thought of doing a stained glass. I have a picture of a simple owl. Would that work?
    I think that would work.

    I went to take a picture of the first completed column. And my camera broke. It's going to be awhile before I can get another one so there may not be any pictures until the fall. Maybe christmas.

    But I'll try to remember and post it when I can. Maybe I can get a friend to take a picture when it is finished.

    Here are some very foggy pictures that I took before the camera broke.

    [IMG]http://i49.tinypic.com/ml5q4w.jpg[/IMG] This was my last block. It's a very simple charm block done with 3 1/2 inch squares to make a 9 inch finished block.

    [IMG]http://i48.tinypic.com/2pzbnfa.jpg[/IMG]This is a modified drunkards path that got scorch marks from my old ratty ironing board cover. That's one way to learn that it needs to be replaced I guess. I didn't know it would transfer if I used water on the material to steam out a fold I had put in it to line up the center pin. I do now.

    [IMG]http://i49.tinypic.com/10mn91y.jpg[/IMG]Here is one of my big booboo's. I wanted to try a lattice pattern. This I'm going to have to practice a great deal with my mommies help before I try again.

    Here are somemore of my blurry blocks.

    [IMG]http://i49.tinypic.com/30ude7c.jpg[/IMG]This is my biscuit block. I hope to make a quilt for my bed from this technique for cold winter nights. It just looks so old fashioned and cuddly. But connecting those little stuffed pockets....easier by hand I think. A nice project for in front of the tv for me.

    [IMG]http://i50.tinypic.com/zwf2f4.jpg[/IMG]Here is my attempt at fusible applique with hand embrtoidery embellishment. Talk about not centered on the block lol.

    [IMG]http://i46.tinypic.com/2w5qg5f.jpg[/IMG]And this is my machine zigzag applique. I found out that it's much easier to make it look full and perfect if I go around it twice with the satin stitch. Of course I found that out after I did this one lol.

    And there are still more out of focus pictures to share.

    [IMG]http://i50.tinypic.com/2150faf.jpg[/IMG]Here is a very nice simple cobblestone. I loved putting this together it was so simple.

    [IMG]http://i49.tinypic.com/2zego6g.jpg[/IMG]This was my second pp. It has 19 pieces in a 9 inch block. I was having a terrible time with this until I was told to pin it from the base to the top rather than the other way around. The way I was doing it I didn't have the seam allowance covered when I sewed it down and pressed it. Once I started from the other end it was fine and I had plenty of material for the seam allowance.

    [IMG]http://i50.tinypic.com/2ql69kz.jpg[/IMG]This is my first pp'ed block. I was thrilled at how the pieces matched up. It does use up a lot of paper though. And extra time. But the back is so smooth compared to the others that for a really complicated block I think this is the way I would want to go.

    Thank you so much for your comments. I'm finding that the sashing is making a big difference. I have three columns put together so far.
