More Webs

I laid out my four completed blocks on the top row and then laid out the triangles just to get the image.  It was so exciting!  So, then I go to my desk to get my camera and low and behold! There is Uki!  I think she wants this for herself!  Check out the cool door stop.
I sat on the couch with my leg spread out on the arm and she just wanted to cuddle.  I was contemplating the design and my use of my scraps and all that when I shot this and it looks like she is looking at it too.  She already gave me her opinion!

I couldn't join my other inspirational blog ladies with this project as over here in Muscat, we don't use 8.5x11" paper.  We use A4, whatever those measurements are.  Longer and thinner.  I thought it would be too much trouble to go buy paper and cut out the millions of 8.5x11" papers to cut up again.  So, I went on the net and fervently looked and found this pattern.  I am squeezing more fabs than the actual paper piecing bit allows therefore customizing it to me.  It has been fun but I lost my legs a couple of times and although my work area is convenient; I must remember to get up and circulate!!  I'm really enjoying this.  I either watch or listen to a movie on my laptop or jam to my iPod which has been fun!!

Your hand attracted me to your blog. It is beautiful. Was it completed when you were a child or later in life? It looks so beautiful!
I hope you post daily, I'd love to read about your life of sewing and other crafts.

Hi GYG! Thank you so much for the compliments. It is indeed my hand and it was henna that I had done for my SIL's wedding in October. The Pearl and Emerald ring was a wedding gift from my MIL and FIL. It has a matching necklace and earrings. You are the first one that has mentioned my hand!! Here in the Middle East it is a very popular to get henna done on your hands and feet for weddings and Eid, which is a religious holiday for the Muslims. Come back by!
