Crazy Patchwork with an Ocean theme

Today I unearthed an old stitching project. I think back .. and it must have been nine years or more when I was so enthused with Crazy Patchwork.

I loved working on this block at the time, playing with colours, imagining the ocean floor and what I could add to bring it to life. Sadly it is still ‘just a block’ and I'm still not sure what it could've potentially turned into.

I’m glad though that I could resurrect it and share here. Embroidery used to be one of my passions; I’m not sure how it got away from me! Maybe “one-day” I can pick it up again.
If you enjoy stitching, patchwork and embroidery; all those things can be rolled into one by creating a Crazy Patchwork block with a theme of your own.

Further reading on Crazy Patchwork in this Helium article I've written: How to Make a Crazy Patchwork Block with a Theme.

Hi Carole, so nice to meet you...thanks for your visit and for your kind words.

Your needle work is simply gorgeous...I just love it.

It is always nice to meet a fellow orchid lover. : ) I have only one Dendrobium . It has lovely and sweet smelling, cascading flowers at the moment.

Actually, nope, not related to La Donna. It was really neat though, when I first met her through blog land, to realize someone out there had the same last name as me...pretty cool.

Hi Again Carole, I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations...you are now the second blogger I know from Australia.

Regarding the last name thing... I think it is a natural assumption about being related. When I first met her I wrote in amazement and told her we had the same last name. I think it was more incredible to me then to her though...it is just so rare to meet someone with the same last name.

All the best.
