this block is for Norma H

Hewoo one and all

This block is for Norma H

Norma said she didn't have a theme but loved all flowers. As this year has been such an unhappy year for my dear friend I thought she needed a fairy to be taking care of her woes and to lift all the unhappiness from her mind even if only for a short while . I have had this print (and another one) for many years and when it came time to make Norma's block up I immediately knew that this one was for her.

So Norma I hope this fufills' your "no theme" and that you like it. I will try and get it into the post tomorrow afternoon it should then be with you within a week - that's always supposing our 2 countries postal and customs people allow it to pass through their hands quickly

Fly away little fairy from my heart to yours Norma this block brings my love to you

Lotsa love n huge bear hugs to you

Finally Viv

Hewoo all and dear Viv

Well I had one more area annoying me and I had collected the bits and pieces together to sort out this problem area and would you believe one other lass (Hi Sandra from dolls) picked the one thing out that bothered me- so now I had confirmation that it was not just my wanky eyes but also someone could see wot I was seeing - Wot a load of waffle- I have sorted it and this is now the block that will begin winging its way to WA and into Viv's hands.

Not happy Viv

Hewoo there one and all

well I uploaded Vivs' "gathering block" late last night but I was so unhappy with it- to me the gold beads next to the piccie of the lady screamed at me when I looked at the block.- So I showed it to DOD(dear old Dad) and said honest opinion and I could see he was struggling to say something so I said wots the first thing your eyes were drawn to and guess wot- the bludy gold beads got him first as well. So off came the wee gold beads and the small amount of gold thread I had put on radiating out from those bludy gold beads and out came the beads again. Yup I had had them off once before and put them back on again Talk about wandering around not knowing if I like or not, so I tried several things and this is wot I finally decided was the finished block-

I left the old version up and put the new version is above this dribble. Which one do you prefer??

I hope Viv likes the new version - I prefer it so much to the old version that I am now happy to post it over to the one, the only, the West Australian ---Vivienne

much love to you Viv

Viv's gathering block finished

Hewoo world and my dear friends

well yet another gathering block is finished- with the completion of this one, I now move onto my territory- the remaining blocks are purples of some sort. I have been such a good girl bear- by forcing myself to do the ones outta my comfort zone first I now have the blocks I can really love doing- well a girls gotta love doing some you know its not all beer and skittles doing the purples one but ooooooh my mind flows when working with a purple background simply flows I am going to do some machine sewing in the next few days and just work on the blocks at night mmmmmmmmmmm ! I have promised and promised to make these little outfits for friends babies and I have gotten involved with the blocks and not with the sewing up of the outfits so the time has come to do some serious sewing!! Do you get the impression that bear prefers to do hand stitching to machine work- yup you would be right with that! gggg I adore smocking and Silk Ribbon embroidery which to some degree the little outfits all have soooooooo....... why oh why does it take me forever to wind myself up into a sewing frenzie! which is what it becomes- and then Col yells at me cos I will be sore for days after and will suffer with swollen arms and hands -- he just doesn't understand though that when the bug finally bites its gotta be finished first before I give into his nagging gggg

Well my dearest Viv do you like your block- yours for some reason was the only block so far to have a piece of patterned material in it and that really threw the old bear for a bit- what to do what to do?? In the end I put some thread around the top leaves tried all sorts of ways to do the bottom leaves and flowers in the end I outline the flowers and then began filling in with different coloured beads I went overboard didntI?? 0h Viv I am so sorry if I did go overboard- does the beading areas look like a flower????? Hope so cos that is what they are girl.

And I have a bone to pick with you Vivienne- gggggg( the long full name crankie bear speech and spelling ) What oh wot is sludgy pink girl?? Please tell I needs to know wot a sludgy pink colour looks like- did I manage to get any of this colour you wrote in your spiel of whats to do / whats not to do!!

Sludgy pink mmmmmmmmmmmm oh Vivienne I was at a loss to do a sludgy pink for ya so that requirement may not be in this block and if it isnt could you enlighten the old bear by showing her a piece of material that looks sludgy kiddo!! Sorry Viv (thats the apology in advance ggg)
love n hugs (and soon to be loud snores - the boys tell me I snore- maybe I dont they do and its repulsive can hear them down the other end of the house with the TV going and they hate being picked on so they tell me I snore- I prolly does but dont like the pair of them ganging up and talking as a double duo of trouble-- that they really and truly are!!

Well Viv and my darling friends big loves and hugs and all that catch ya on the morning and I hope you all have a fabulous day over the big pond in both directions and all
loves and biggie hugs

another gathering block is finished

Well 2 posts in one night as I live and breath this is amazing isnt it??

This is yet another "gathering" heart all finished and packed up ready to go to its new home
Some time ago I was talking to Sandie and she had just received a black background and purple features block from our dear friend Julia, and Sandie told me she was becoming more purple minded then she had been and I suggested I do her gathering block in purples instead of her normal pinks. I hope that she is still thinking this way as knowing she likes bees I also embroidered some bullion bees onto this block etc. Sandie I hope and pray you are still wanting another purple block cos girl this is yours from my heart to you

Normas' tatted heart

many moons ago I told of a delightful tatted bear heart I received from Norma from Chain Of Hearts list. We make and swap hearts with other members on that list anyway I was absolutely delighted with this particular heart as Norma had gone to the trouble to tat me a bear and then I couldnt get the photo to load up.
Well months later I have finally gotten the heart rescanned and here it is for your looking delight- I think its a special heart from a very very special lady Thank you Norma darling
