This week I haven't done much Crazy Quilting, my DH got operated for the 5th time. He lost most of the use of his right hand after a motoraccident
3 1/2 years ago and the surgeons are still working on getting some movement back. Because I had to wait a long time in hospital during the operation I decided to stitch a Victorian looking block from silks and some old neckties, so I had something to embroider! I must admit that I found it difficult what colors to use to get this Victorian
look.I will keep you updated on the embellishing, I only wonder if
the Victorian did also use cross-stitch on their blocks, I would love to embroider a butterfly on the block! The bookmarks I finished last weekend, they are my owm design, the purple one was also for my mothers birthday, who was very happy with her presents. The beautiful heart I received this week was made by Maureen in Australia, it has my favorite colors and style, ain't it pretty?

The bookmarks are too cute! Maureen does lovely work, but so do you.

I like your block. Put the butterfly in!

How is your husband feeling now? Will this be the last time he has to do this?
