Wendy's Fairy block

Here is the fairy block I did for Wendy in our RR. I ended up changing the block I had originally decided to do as inspiration struck at the last moment. Actually I had ideas for ALL the blocks but my butterflies made the decision for me as they went perfectly with this block... I went with what I hope is like looking thru the opening in the brush to e the fairy and had to include a mushroom button to which a fairy is dancing around :)

Motifs for swap

I'm praying that when I get these sent out that they will arrive in time as the deadline for these to be in the coordinators hands is the 31st of Aug.
One of these will be picked by the coordinator as her postal bribe so that leaves at least 2 of the snowflake snowmen that several of the ladies loved when I made them for the center of my Winter RR blocks :)

Meg's Winter RR block

It has been some time since I posted and I know I've missed a few pictures of blocks but I will endeavour at a later date to figure out which ones are missing an post them then.
Today I have Meg finished Winter RR block. It took some doing to get it done and spent a fair amount of time deciding on what to do... I guess the thought of Winter just in't appeal to me.. especially as we haven't had much of a Summer this year... it's raining today again!
I went with using the white patch as ground covered in snow and then added a trim to give it some interest and added buttons and made 2 snowmen. I added a little trim to give each a scarf.
I then added a couple buttons to the woolly centre as well as a trim at the top to look like a fur collar.
I then covered the rest in all different snowflakes. I think the final result is quite Wintery. It did give me back the bug to work on my CQing RR blocks so I got started on another last nite.. with luck I will finish it tonite so it can be mailed out this week.
