Progress on Fools Gold RR

Sorry for the absence from the blog front. I have been really busy and am limiting the my time on the computer. I have been working on a few things though. Some I am waiting to be delivered before I post and a rr that I am working on. I have been having camera issues as well, which really is a pain when you have a blog and love to post pics. First off is work I did for Karen in the rr "Fools Gold" where we are using faux gold instead of real gold thread and such. This has been a great rr and I have challenged myself to use new to me techniques on each block. Which I have done with this block. I used Gerry K's technique of doing an outline of your design from the back of the block. Then when you are ready to stitch just follow the lines and fill in where you would like. It does take a little more time, but is well worth the effort. You do not have to mark on the front of the block or use the tissue transfer method for your motif. I will definitely be using this method again in the future. Thank you Gerry for sharing this great technique with all of us on your blog. Karen gave a list of subjects that she likes that we could use for her blocks. As she indicated that she liked flowers, I chose to do my interpretation of a lotus blossom. She has three hot blocks and three cool blocks so I chose a cool block to work with. As my camera was not working correctly I do not have a pic of the finished block, but do have a few in progress ones to show.

Until next time,
