Birds and Bee's RR Block

Here is a pic of my Birds and Bees RR block that I am in over at CQI, this is the second RR that I am in. I had swapped hearts over at COH and received a gorgeous heart with a birdhouse on it. I decided I would use it as the focus center for this RR. I so love this heart. Now it no longer looks like a heart but the work is all intact and I love it. There are five of us in the group so four other ladies will be working on this block before it comes home to me. This block will be matted and framed when finished.Then I was in a fq swap and this is what I am sending my swap partner. I also enclosed two for her son in fabric that she said he would like. That way they both can have some swappy goodness! This is for her:
And this is for her son, she said he liked dragons, turtles and penguins I had two out of the three so I think I did good:
I just love the penguin fabric. I have been waiting and waiting for this yarn to go on sale so I could buy some. It was $9.99 a skein and finally my patience has paid off, it went on sale this week for $1.99. I am doing a happy dance. I am going to use it on a denim jacket that I want to use the embellisher on. I may go back and get some more over the weekend just so I can have it for more projects later.They have this same thread in pastels also, of course at the time all I could see was the bold and beautiful colors!lol. It has a velvety feel to it and is just luscious. This photo does not do the colors justice but it will have to do. I am definitely going back to get more. I have four hoodies that I could embellish with this. And of course post cards with this would be fun too.

Love your block, Wendy. That's a neat idea to "reform" a heart. You truly scored on that yarn! Watch out, I can see more than dish cloths in your future!

My goodness! i also have an embellisher...the Babylock EMB12, and it is so much fun, isn't it? I am dying to see what you do with that penguin fabric. Oh by the way, are you into machine embroidery too? If so, email me...we will have to talk about that one and the embellishers.
