cq block

cq block
cq block,
originally uploaded by Pinyon Creek Stitchin'.
I'm still in the throes of working out the technical issues of this software...we'll see if it works the way i'm wanting it too! I'm SUCH a technodoofus!

Anywhoo, this is a pic of a current work in progress. It is really a lot more rich in color in person...another issue to be addressed! ;-) Anyway, as a part of my quest to become better in this art form and to continue to learn new stitch combos, I am using this piece to experiment on. I've actually done a bit more to it since this pic which i'll have to snap latter! I wonder in studying it, how many folks start with the ol' traditional five sided piece in the middle (or close to that)of the block. How many use a neutral, plain piece of fabric? I personally love texture and combining different fabrics so that some, like velvet, can add the depth and flavor i'm seeking to express in whatever I am working on. I've had oodles of comments on this particular block. What am I going to do with it? What's it for? What's that stitch? What's it called? And so forth. Kind of nice. Its a neat way to casually enter into a conversation with someone that normally ignores you and maybe discover something in common with them or at least just have a great talk about something I love! :) Soooo, I will continue to post progress on this block as time goes by. If anyone sees a great opportunity for a stitch combo or embellishment in a particular place on this block, please chime in!! I'd LOVE to hear whatcha have to say!
