Babies & CQ Embellished Laces

Two weeks!? Where did it go? Seems like I just posted about my Naked Mermaid blocks and now I find that that post was two weeks ago! Guess you could say I've been really busy. Just got back home from a trip to CA to visit with my son Jason and DIL Evy. I don't normally write about personal things but I have to tell you just a little bit about this trip.

Not only did I get to feel my grand babies doing a little dance and kicking up a storm, I had the privilege of going to my DIL Evy's ultra sound appointment and got to see them. Little buggers were being shy so I didn't get to see their adorable faces this time but did on a previous CD. Have to admit little DeAngelo looks like his daddy and Evita looks like mommy. Only a couple more months and this world will be blessed with two new precious babies.
I've also been extremely busy planning the 3rd Annual COF Retreat for the ladies on the HGTV board. This time around we have 70 ladies flying in from all over the US.... it is going to be one wild time in Manchester, NH come April 24th! I have a feeling that the Highlander Inn will never be the same once we decend on it! The committee met at my house yesterday and had a very productive meeting. Things are right on schedule and if everything goes as planned, we will all have one fantastic time.

As for projects... well the only thing that I've actually completed in the past couple of weeks has been some embellished lace motifs that I just sent in for a swap that I am in. I've seen pictures of some of the items that the other participants have made to swap and am so excited about the surprises I'll be receiving back - what a great way to share in lots of different CQ creations..... I can't wait to receive my goodies back so that I can incorporate them into a block.


  1. It sounds like your trip was great - how cool is it that you were able to see an ultrasound of the twins!

    Your embellished laces are stunning (as always!!). I hope you show pics of the swap goodies you receive.

  2. Missed you Nicki!
    Glad you got to feel the future and Deangelo & Evita are getting ready!
    I never thought to layer lace motifs, what a great idea.
    See you soon roomie!

  3. Oh! Nicki Lee so love that Black and gold in third photo, so glad you had a good trip. Hope you have some of those on sell table,hint. Libby

  4. LOL! Libby - only you would pick out that black & yellow! I'm easing into orange and yellow slowly... maybe I should just go full force and make a CQ block depicting nothing but those colors! And yes... I'll be bringing lots of pretties to the Retreat.

  5. nOh my! What an awesome idea. Now why didn't I think of that.Sure glad someone did. So happy to have stopped by. It's a wonder I still work (part time that is) So much to do-So little time.

  6. Everything is just beautiful! I ams till checking to see your etsy shop!
    Happy Spring!


  7. Threadhead, I'm still going to set up on Etsy and also Artfire as soon as the babies are here and my upcoming Retreat is over. Too many things in the fire right now to concentrate on them but I will do it before 2009 is over - remember that was a resolution I made in January LOL!

  8. These embellished lace motifs are so pretty...I would never have thought of doing anything like this, but now it seems so perfectly inevitable. Wow!
    We are expecting twins in our family, niece has two girls getting ready to join the family, due in June. We are so happy and excited for her....

  9. Hi, I first saw your handdyed laces on CQ Mag Online. They are beautiful. What do you use to dye your laces and what is a good way for a beginner at handdyeing laces, to start? I've done some koolaid and food coloring dyeing but without much success. I can be reached at

    Thank you.
