    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA - I have no creativity. As long as I can follow the pattern I do okay. Otherwise, let's just not visit that park.

    I have very ittle creativity either and when I try to adjust a pattern or draw my own from something I've seen, it's not pretty. Actually the project turns out great but the process of trying to make my own pattern, that's not pretty.

    Got 3 more of those puppies done. I just have to get them posted when I get home from work. (Needless to say, things have gotten slow around here in the last little while)

    I just have the 4 roses to do. I got the leaves for them turned and stuffed last night. tonight I want to sew the handles to the baskets and do the pressing.

    I'm going to be doing one in yellow, one in pink, one in red and one in peach. So here's hoping that they turn out. :lol:

    I love your blocks. You're doing a great job.
    Now for the dumb question (I know there are no dumb questions, just dumb answers) who or what is EB - you said the patterns were from there?
    I may want to try this pattern. I love doing hand applique, cause it's a great travel project.

    Okey dokey. Got the embroidery done on a couple (so if they look familiar, you'll know why)

    Still have 4 more to go. Roses (this is going to be the War of the Roses this weekend :D )

    I love how the 1/2" cross hatch looks!!! I did that to a trapunto table runner I made a few years ago and just loved how it looked!! I would do that technique in a heartbeat if I get the chance again. I am thinking of starting a Trapunto quilt in the new year with a friend of mine that sews with me on Thursday nights. We both want to make full size Trapunto quilts for our beds. I might do that 1/2" cross hatch on that too..

    BTW, your applique blocks are GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love doing applique and I can certainly appreciate the work gone into those beautiful blocks. It looks like there is alot of embellishing and 3D work put into them!! I can't WAIT to see how it will look when its all finished and quilted. I really hope to post photos!

    Thanks for telling me. I haven't done much of her stuff and later after I wrote the question and was doing dishes it hit me who EB was. DUH!
    I love the ruched flowers. I have some difficulty with them.

    All of your blocks are gorgeous! I love all of them. Your mom sounds like mine. Anytime I make anything that tickles her fancy she drops "subtle" hints. LOL.

    Well, the War of the Roses is over!!!!! And I won :D Of course, these suckers took almost 2 full days for me to make just the four (the baskets, leaves and stems were already done).

    Never, never, never again!!!

    Anyhoo, here they are.
