SUCCESS












All the pieces ,to-gether before I did the buttonhole stitch around the edge

Hi Everyone....
I am so happy to tell you I finished my puzzle pieces for Pat Winter.I have to get them to her before June 1st! Whew!!
She has a challenge going and I signed up to do it... To see more go here to see the Puzzles of Friendship.
It has been quite a stretch for me since I am not much of a crazy patch artist, however with Pat as my mentor I am learning.

I think these are beautiful and it was your puzzle pieces that inspired the puzzle pieces I have posted on my blog. Not embroidery and definetly not the time you put into yours. Thanks for sharing your work.

Hi Ladies....
You are all so generous with your sweet comments.. Thanks so much. This Crazy Patch will not defeat me!!! I just ordered a book of Judith Montanas and another in CD form to learn stitches etc....I am so weak with my stitches....
and Noel.. the edges I did using the buttonhole stitch very close to-gether. It is one I really enjoy doing... So stay tuned to follow my progress!! Thanks again dear Hearts
