Ricrac Flowers

I love my New Friends Night Group!
Last night we got together in one of member's lovely backyard for a pot luck and a bit of hand sewing. JA's yard is so nicely landscaped and it was a pleasure to sit and enjoy our meeting.
Our hand project was taught by versatile member T who always has interesting projects to show as she not only is a quilter but teaches at a Pfaff dealer and attends yearly a huge sewing conference with all the newest stuff.
We learned how to do these darling ric-rac flowers...Zinnias...and even though mine is a bit wonky...I still think it is so cute. Very easy to do and they just are so cute for the right project that needs some embellishment.
Thanks T!
Other than that not much to show but I hope to get another block embroidered for my Christmas project soon as it is about 1/2 done right now.

I love that! Rick Rack is so fun. I've always wondered if you could so something like that with it.
