Returning CQ Blocks

Well... here we are... waiting for the polls to open (it's election day here in NZ)... waiting... waiting... that's what I get for waking up at 5.30 in the morning. So I figured now was a good time to document my returning blocks. The blocks for all three RRs I was in have returned (we aren't talking about the UTS RR... EV-ER).
The first one - A "seams only" RR - came back  a couple of months ago. The second one - Garden & Flowers Traditional - arrived home last week, and the third one - Garden & Flowers DYOB - came home yesterday.

The stitchers for the Stitching Only 2013 RR were Maire C., Susie J., Molly P., Rose Anne B., and me, with Tahlia H. as angel.

You just GOTTA see Rose Anne's most adorable little ants! Aren't they just the cutest little things ever! (Can you tell I really love them?)

The stitchers for the G&F Traditional were Arlene W., Candace B., Velia A., Shelly R., and me, with Gerry H. as our angel. It is such a wonderful block, and I was totally thrilled when I saw it!

The stitchers for the G&F DYOB were Arlene W., Elizabeth R., Barbara W., Shelly K., Flora G., and me, with Renee Y. as our angel.

Arlene did the purple block

 Liz did the green block

Barb did the orange/brown block

Shelly did the red/burgundy block

Flora did the blue block. Have a good look at the smaller lace - it looks like spiderwebs and bees. How cool is that?

That leaves the pink block for me to do.

All the blocks are just wonderful! I love the unique style that each stitcher has, and that I have come to recognise. I plan on making these into a wall hanging, and they will be the very first CQ work to be hung on my walls.

Thank you to all the ladies in all the RRs.

Well, gotta go vote now.


  1. What beautiful work Ladies! Love the colors and all the creative motifs & stitches.
    Thanks for sharing your lovely eye candy. Can't wait to see it in a wall hanging.

  2. So many beautiful treasures! The ladies all did amazing work. And, I agree, the ants are adorable!

  3. I am glad that you received such beautiful blocks Dana and I love the ants!
