Want to see something purty?

A couple months ago I signed up for a RR on the CQI Forum.  I had always wanted to to step outside my typical blues & greens or pink & green colors so decided to go with a Pink & Black color pallet.  The theme of the RR was Roses.  I created my 12.5" block using dupioni silk, satins, brocades, velvet and and a pretty little silky and sent it on it's way wondering how it would be returned (always love a mystery).  Well.... no surprise to me I received my block back dressed out to the max with beads, buttons, silk ribbon, beautiful stitches and even a fabulous spider!   Thank you Ely, Rita, Gerry & Lorrie for creating such a beautiful block - I just LOVE it!
