What are you most proud of? That I started to use some of my HUGE stash. I am a craftaholic and have everything from embroidery floss, ribbons, buttons, appliques, beads, paints, fabric paints, stamps, threads, wool and an extraordinary fabric collection I have accumulated in just the last three years. My husband was thrilled to help me get all my storage tubs arranged.

Thank you Della.

Thanks Scheri, I will. I see you did that and as soon as I can figure out why my printer's paper feed doesn't want to act right, I'll get right on it. I'm just old enough to be more comfortable with a book that is actually in my hands ;)

I took the PDF into a quick copy shop to have printed added a cerlox binding for easy use.

Hey Allie thank you so much for this class. You are an excellent teacher. I sure hope you have plans for more classes on Craftsy.com.

Wow! this block is really beautiful! I'm inspired by your creativity Scheri! I just inherited a box of old lace scraps and have been wondering what to do with it all. Did you take this crazy quilt class on Craftsy? If so, which one? Love your work!

Love the beads you have used on this. I used Embroidered and Embellished for inspiration too.
