Anything Goes - Carol's blocks

Carol's theme was Valentine's Day. She included a bunch of fibers and goodies that we could choose to use, or not. I found a "diamond" bracelet in the bag which made a good frame for one of the hearts printed in the fabric. I also did some seam stitching and added a tatted heart and a felted heart.

Anything Goes - Darlene's blocks

Darlene's theme was fairy tales. I chose Jack and the Beanstalk. I added a piece of lace that my cousin gave me from her stash and did some viney stitching with beads. Also framed the silkie with more beads and stitching. Usually my work tends to be bright and colorful, but somehow this turned out quite pastel in tone.
