I am doing a Crazy Quilt Round Robin with four other ladies. I've never done crazy quilting before so this is something new for me. I am enjoying it so far. Here is the block I sent out. It is somewhere around the U. S. right now...between Georgia and Washington. I'll have it back in October after its been to Denmark. It will be exciting to see what everyone came up with for it.
A few of these talented ladies are doing beautiful ribbon embroideries on the blocks. I love looking at what they've done and I admire their work so much. Someday I will learn to do that but for now my additions to the blocks are simple stitcheries. This is my stitchery on Janet's block.

I enjoyed Nanette's post about the special sewing caddies and tools she uses at her machine and when hand stitching. My sewing "caddy" is a nifty little drawer that sits right in front of my machine. I can reach inside for whatever I want, almost without looking and would be lost without it. I've even learned how to sew with it opened sometimes. It is just so important.
Did you notice there are 3 tools for unpicking mistakes? They come in handy....all 3. And really get a workout!
