Giveaway winner and Shabby Rose

I want to thank everyone who participated in the my 100th post giveaway.It was alot of fun seeing all the comments--thank you all very much. And the winner is....Marie Reed! I know Marie Reed from VTT-she has the most wonderful vintage postcards (and right now a great vintage video) so hop on over.

I've been slowly working on my Shabby Rose blocks and I am finally caught up!

I'm planning on using these blocks dispersed through a shabby chic style disappearing 9-patch, so I decided I should switch background fabrics after the first three blocks...but I'm not so happy with the results and may switch back again.

This is a little too light...I tried this fabric because there are curlyques in the fabric that are like the flowers and I thought that echo thing was rather neat but its really doesn't show up.

A little too busy...I could save myself some embroidery though-you can barely see the embroidered flowers for the printed ones!

Beautiful quilts!!! I especially love the mini yoyo quilt.

I'm new to blogging and truthfully need to stop "finding" new amazing bloggers!!! I just graduated (oldest one out of 24 girls in my class) and it wasnt until my daughter showed me her blog she started that I realized and understood what a "blog" was!

Have to get going, but I will be back :o)

(I have some quilts that I have yet to complete! :o(
hmmm, with school done, I'll be able to pick it back up...that is, if I limit my time in this blog world!)

If you stop by mine, please let me know with a comment-it is so much fun meeting new blogger friends).

I don't do much embroidery so really appreciate others work. It is all really pretty I think.

Your embroidery is SO pretty! I haven't done much of that in years, but you inspire me!

What beautiful embroidery! So lovely, it really makes me wish I had enough patience to do that handwork!

I am positively giddy Miri! I will be using the mini quilt as a pillowcase! I can't wait to snuggle with it while reading on the couch:) You are such a gem! Thank you for you generosity!

Love your blocks. I am playing catch up with mine.

I love the fabrics you chose for these blocks. I agree with you and like how you did it in the first few better than when you switched them. Interesting how the background fabric can make a difference in the final look with embroidery.
