Sharon Boggon's Pin Tangle is one of my favorite stitchery blogs. She recently wrote a post about ribbon floss. I love ribbon floss. Some years ago a local closeout fabric shop got in a supply of a German ribbon floss and I bought a whole bunch of spools. I was sorry I didn't buy more and when I went back they were gone! Here's a scan (pre-decent digital camera days) of some stitching I did with the ribbon floss on a crazy quilt round robin I participated in during 2002. I lifted the idea of those little trees from a block that Sharon made! Debbie

Marie recently posted on her blog about email acquaintances from the past. She also brought up some of her work that was done during those years of activity on the silkribbon mailing list. I am one of those from the past and would like to share a small section of my family heirloom chuppah that I made where I used a stitch design that Marie developed called the Melanie Rose (named after her daughter.) Marie is also having a drawing on her blog for her blogiversary. Check it out.

I joined the Black and White Challenge a few weeks ago and have started working on a quilt. I made some test blocks and like it so far. Here are the rules to the challenge. Unfortunately, as the blogger system only allows 100 member per blog, the challenge is now closed to new members. But, you can still check in to follow everyone's progress.

OK, I give up. I've been resisting it, but it seems that I NEED a blog! So, here I am. My plan is to post photos of things that I am working on. In between, I will post photos of past projects that may or may not be finished. I will try to post at least once a week. Debbie
