A Trade with Candji

Another 6" square arrived for me today in exchange for one I sent to Candji Buckohr in Ohio.  I hope the photo does it justice as every part of it is so delicate it reminds me of what a fairy's garden might look like.  Thank you so much Candji for this little work of art.

This photo is of Candji's square for me.

Now the topper on this exchange is that Candji just happened to have this pretty blue rectangle (only partially shown) lying around and she included it with the square she sent...another sweet and nicely embroidered example of her work.  Could this possibly be made into the cover for my collection of 6" squares?  I'll be sure to try it and, if not, it definitely will be made into a finished project.

I've got to get going on the squares I have promised to others and I can't wait for the next ones to come home to me.


  1. Where ever did you get the idea for the seam treatment of purple "zs" and "ss" with gold buttons and beads in Canji's block? I really like it.

  2. Those are both so beautiful! I love the colors you used- the slightly dusty pinks, purples and greens go so well with the block itself. And the spider Candji did- best spider *ever*. It's *alive*, not just sitting there like mine turn out like!

  3. Beautiful work on both blocks. Candji's block is so soft a pretty - even with a real life spider! And your block is so elegant with all your beautiful SRE.

    I haven't forgotten about your block - I have it all put together just need to do the embellishing. I hope to get it to your before Christmas. I've missed seeing you chatting about and hope you are well.
