Wine Traditional RR

CQI had never had a WINE traditional round robin and it sounded like fun, so I joined. 
I have a big cork collection so I had fun sewing half corks to everyone's block.  Some I was able to cut in half with a cleaver, but I discovered a small hack saw worked best on the denser ones.

Here is my blank block ready to send off for the others to work on.  I see I forgot to take a picture of my finished block, so I must do that before I can finish this post. 
This is the finished block. Isn't it great?  All of the blocks came out wonderfull and I'd not hesitate to sign up for another round.

Why I haven't been posting much lately.

This is Heartly. He came to live with us shortly after Thanksgiving and life is not the same! I wouldn't trade him for anything, but he sure has cut into my stitching time.

All About Grey

Last Spring CQI had a challenge which I joined. It was called All About Grey and the idea was to piece a block using only shades and textures of grey. I got my block pieced when life happened and I got a little bit behind. Finally, things calmed down and I did finish the block. It was really fun to work with all one 'color'. I had done this in round robins with pink and red, but grey was something different, and to do the whole 12" block by myself just added to the fun. ?
Here is the bare block - and the finished block.
