These pictures are taken by my husband this morning, the first one is made in front of my home and the other two on the other side of the road. Normally we don't get much or even no snow in wintertime, but so much snow in autumn is very unusual......... It is beautiful to see, but not so nice when you have to drive to work!

This is the second block I had to embellish in the Do Your Block Round Robin of the Crazy Quilters Around the World group.
is block is for Hideko in Japan. Her theme is Autumn Roses.
After a weekend of embellishing this is the result.
The whole weekend it was snowing and cold, so I have been sewing all day!

Today I want to show you some pictures of a new project I am working on.
Maybe you have noticed the last months that I have been collecting a lot of fabrics, beads, trims, threads etc.

I want to make these diamonds in different colors from light to darker and keep them all in tone to tone fabrics.
The difficulty is that for one diamond as shown on the picture you need 30-35 different pieces of fabrics in one color, so this project will take a lot of time to finish.........

One diamond measures 3 by 5 inch and as you see, each big diamond is made of 9 little diamonds. I am still adding beads etc. to this diamondblock.


I have now stitched 9 little diamonds in purple and plan to do a yellow/orange and a light to dark green one after this, but still have to collect some more fabrics. I have enough dark colors, but the light ones are always a problem......
