Here is the first neutral slab I received from (Dawn's slab-a thon group)
--from Jacky--isn't it just a PERFECT low volume neutral--just what I hoped for......I love it!
This will just be amazing with my 2.5" neutral postage stamp squares
that I  am sewing for a table runner...
thank you so much Jacky...(no blog--
 ;(((),..) for the lovely block....

*************************** AND:
Here are a few shots of my hexagon Snow Flowers that I un-earthed from my closet of shame today...

 I worked on this a long,long time  ago...

time to get it together...ya think???

I plan to put blue borders on it .....after sewing it to the snow "white on
white background"....


Look at this:        Beautiful Peonies............

Here is one  about to bloom...

Aren't they just gorgeous?? 

Will be posting the other slabs as I receive them..
What fun!! To get squishey mail....I am so thrilled.....
Note to self--this Improv thing is really hard for me.....harder than I thought
it would be....you gals doing this stuff are amazing....
I sewed and cut a couple strippies today...but just don't know yet--
hmmmmm, stay tuned....

hugs, Julierose, La Blageuse... (elated-euse)
