    CQI RR - Update 2

    I decided the naked block looked too, well, naked. So, I added some lace and trim. I've been asked about my plans for the overall theme and for finishing it off. At first I wasn't really sure but I have now decided that I will use some more of the same fabric as the center teapot as a border. And make just a small, stand alone wall hanging.

    Today I got my booklet put together. Now I'm ready to get it mailed off. For privacy I removed the personal information from the back cover.

    Well, I'm off to work on some ATC's, take photos for the STS-Spring, and start a spread sheet for the STS-Summer. In case I don't make it back today, have a wonderful WEEKEND!!!!

    Until Next time...Happy Needling!!!
