Silk fom Fiona

 A few years ago I bought a silk square at a workshop.  I decided to see if I could get a few more and found the website. The picture above is the one I had.  I emailed Fiona  www.our-pukka-place.com and asked what she had available. She sent me pictures and I ordered a few as well as a silk kit for a class I am taking in June.  I was surprised when the package arrived in a sewn bag.
 These are the ones I received.  Silk sewn to a black cotton back.
And the back side. They are about 12 x 12 inches
 And the beautiful pieces of silk with a few bits of bling.
 She also has an etsy site www.etsy.com/shop/Glitzandpieces .  I am not sure what I am going to do with the blocks yet, but I will soon enough.

flowers and hummingbirds

There is a local quilt shop that opened up here. When I went to get fabric for the back of my physics aka string theory quilt I saw these cute little wool blocks of the month that you put together and when done have a wall hanging. I saw the flower which was the third one so I bought that, and the hummingbird was the second one and I got that.

I still have to put the fabric back on the back of the wool square.  I went back to get the third one and my daughter bought it for me for Mothers Day. She also took a picture of the wall hanging so I have something to go by to put it all together.  What fun.  I still have to add feet on the hummingbird, and I did change it a bit. Now if i only keep from loosing these in the house before they are done......
