Didn't take me long to try out a few pieces of yellow lace. I am currently in a CQ RR (Round Robin) with a group of ladies from a CQ Site on Yahoo. One of the first blocks I received to work on happened to be .... Yellow in color. Immediately I had to try out a couple of my new pretties. This block belongs to Phyllis - sure hope she likes what I've created. A couple days ago I received a comment about my dyed laces from Denise of Needlework.craftgossip If you haven't checked out this site it is a must - be prepared to grab a cup of coffee and make yourself comfortable as you will spend hours going through all the great projects, articles and wonderful pictures!
The next morning I woke up to an email box full of wonderful notes from perfect strangers on how pretty they thought my laces were. I was so excited and so thrilled to see that Denise had written a little article on her site about me and my passion. Nicki-Lees-hand-dyed-lace . Thank you Denise!

I'm actually suppose to be busy packing for our upcoming vacation to Maine but find myself playing with all my CQ goodies. Figured I'm going to need something to keep me busy if it rains and we are stuck in the cabin........ oh poor me - to be stuck inside with all my CQ treasure and nothing to do! I figure I might as well get my "sewing suitcase" packed first. Last week I made 11 CQ blocks for various swaps and have decided to take these four with me to work on. Lets, see... beads - check, buttons-check, laces -check, threads - check ... that should take care of at least one suitcase! I'm still trying to decide whether or not to bring up my sewing machine..... figure if I don't, then it won't tempt me to go off in another direction - without it I can focus on doing nothing but CQ. Hopefully by the time I get back (9 days) I will have these naked blocks done and ready to start on the next 4.
