This is Ely's block and my stitching. (-; I added the corner of the hankie in the lower left-hand corner to balance off the red in the upper right. I made the little white flowers in the upper right-hand corner out of a narrow lace trim. I thought it toned down the red fabric a bit. The "Be Mine" motif was a motif on some fabric that I cut out and appliqued down. The rest is just a button, some trims, and some seam treatments. Hope you like it Ely.

This is my snowball for Thearica. She wanted a hexagon in the theme of "Pigs on the Farm" -- think Charlotte's Web. I took an embroidery design for a pig from http://www.french-knots.com/cute-pig-embroidery-transfer-pattern/ and made an applique pig of some thin light pink linen. Then I accented the little guy with some embroidery. The fence is from a decorator fabric. The tree is chikan embroidery that I am learning in a class. There is a spider's web which is difficult to see in the picture, but it is made from a sparkling gold thread. The spider is dangling near the pigs tale. I also put a bullion embellished vine on the fence. I think he is cuter than this in person. Maybe I will try to get a better picture in the light tomorrow. If you single click on it you can see it better.
