When I saw the blocks that Alice and Ritva had done for NickiLee, I went into a funk; feeling very inadequate. About that same time, they had a little 'chat' on CQI about that very same thing. Seems I'm not the only one, so I just "dove in" and started stitching. It turned out to be a lot of fun. I made a hunk of sunken wood, complete with barnicles, and a couple of mossy rocks. Then there was the crab with disjointed legs..lol.
