Valentines and Snowballs - Some Crazy Things

This is my work on Ely's 6 inch vintage valentine themed block for a RR over on Crazy Quilting International Yahoo Group. I loved the silky of the little girl that was on the block when I received it. 

And this is a snowball I made to exchange with Alice.  She wanted a botanical type snowball so here it is. It's really difficult, I think, to piece something so small. Trace a CD and you know the size. I used some botanical fabrics I had in my stash and then added a silk ribbon botanical daffodil, some anorexic bees, a tatted butterfly and then framed it all in some french knots.

Ahhhh, you made me chuckle with your anorexic bee comment! Thanks.
