And, because it's too late to start a new project, I figured I'd take a new pic to show what the August block looks like with the other blocks. Definitely much better!

Once I get my last 2 blocks tested, I'll be playing around with the arrangement so that it looks nice- they're just sort of randomly placed at the moment...

And, just so you know my math skills are okay... I've only photographed the 9 blocks that have been posted so far. I have the November block finished, but I don't want to spoil the surprise Wink

Okay, I re-worked my August block to make it less TURQUOISE. With the orange as a contrast, it is much more vibrant and fits in better with the other blocks. And, I crocheted a bit more tightly so it wouldn't be quite so huge compared to my other blocks.

I am much happier now Wink

I'm sure you'll love it, Slingmomma! It looks so much more complicated than it is, so you'll be surprised at how quickly it goes.

I laid out all of my squares, and I definitely have some getting-them-to-the-same-size work ahead of me. And, I'm thinking I need to frog the last couple of rounds of the August block (or re-make it completely and turn the first one into a pillow)- I made it all in one color, and it's the only one that I did it on. It just seems to clash with the other blocks. And, now that I know where all of the bobbles land, I'll know where to put the color changes.

What do you think?

It doesn't look horrible right now, because the solid block is centered. But when I add the last 3 blocks, I think it'll stick out like a sore thumb.

Because I start a new job tomorrow, and I'm afraid that I'll forget to post it, I'm posting the September block a wee bit early. Plus, I'm so excited about this block! It was created by the one and only mochaxlight and I had a chance to test it. I think it's my favorite block so far!

It's called Vera's Spike Stitch Daisy, and it was inspired by a Vera Bradley fabric.

I'm trying to locate my pattern notes, so if you have any questions in the meantime, check with mocha Wink

My mom and I made one of these for my cousin's recent baby shower. It looked so nice sitting on the table with all of the presents. We added in some yellow flowers because we couldn't find enough bunches of white ones, and it looked great! We ended up using skewers to wire everything to, and it worked out perfectly.

Thanks for posting such a great project!

In exchange for sending her some puzzles, Phizzychick sent me a set of gorgeous inchies! So, I had to share...

Phizzychick, did you find where you put your other puzzles? Wink

Okay... here are my initial efforts. I used photos as a reference for these.

Be kind...

I am starting to think I may have to resend to craftADDchick!  Her envelope got returned to me but was resent out on Saturday, it should have been received by now  Huh

Have no fear! Your envelope is here!! Yay!

Everything arrived in a neat envelope made from a calendar page (a rooster), and there was a smaller handmade envelope inside with some die cuts, a paper clip, a charm and some beads. There was also a piece of ribbon, some neat papers, $100 ( Wink ), a car dimensional sticker, funny Domino's Pizza spoof sticker, a flower applique and a cool piece of fabric.

And.... inchies! An excellent set for my collection! I love them! I almost bought a frame yesterday, but I didn't have the measurements with me. Soon...

Thank you so much, Lindy!

I received an awesome envelope of stuff from audio-astrophysics; I fear that my envelopes are ghostly pale in comparison!

First, a bunch of cool papers (definitely using some of these in the altered puzzle-along), some play money, small playing cards and some yarn.

And... some fabulous inchies for my collection! I love them!

Thanks so much, audio!

Oh, my! I forgot to post the square yesterday! Sorry fantasticmio! Wink

But, here it is! It's the Popin' Square and it features a neat pattern of popcorn clusters. I'd never done them before, so it was fun to learn, and I was surprised at how easy they were.

I found a couple of minor errors in the pattern and I noted them on the first page.

And, here's one at an angle to show the popcorn stitches a bit better. Not much better, but a teeny bit...
