This has been so much fun so far -- the combination of embroidery (or applique) with the pieced blocks is great!
Here is a reminder of my first block:
I'm using embroidery on mine, and thirties repro fabrics!
Be sure to hop around and see how each of the peeps in the blog hop have made this block their own:
BOM Bloggers (go ahead, click on 'em!)
And be sure to drop by Jacquelynne's blog to see the latest -- the blog hop, giveaways, recipes and more . . . that lady is busy! (Grin)
Here are some photos of my version of Block 2:
You'll have to forgive the blurry picture; of course it was raining when I was ready to take my photos!
There's the embroidery block, made up and ready to go!
The whole block . . .

And a special photo of my helper on these embroideries:
My handy-dandy Frixion pen! (Bet you thought I meant Padsworth, right?) I should write an ode to this pen. Draw out the pattern, make a mistake or two, add a little heat and the lines disappear! Wowser!
And today we have a giveaway contest starting! This one will remain open for a week, and then we'll let that adorable Mr. Random Number Generator choose our winner.
