My blocks have arrived home! And each is wonderful! These were NOT stitched by me...but by my swap partners. I sent each lady a simple English Garden image printed on silk fabric, with a cotton floral border. They were to embellish the image. Here's what each lady did...aren't they marvelous!

I think that each one turned out lovely. These were only small blocks, less than 8 inches square...but still each required a lot of stitching...and stepping out of a normal comfort zone of standard crazy patch enhancement. Lot's of French knots and beads were sewn down in such a small space...and I am very appreciative of the efforts of each wonderful lady!
