Frosty Flake #2

got it done, it's sooooo cute!!  If you haven't joined in yet, you need hop over to dawn hay's blog(see the frosty flake button on my side bar) and download these fun patterns. 
Here's my version of her frosty flakes block 2.

I even found some beads this week .  Last week I used small buttons and french knots.  I think it's a little "overflashed" the color appears to be kind of orangey but I assure it's red.  If you missed last week here are both of them.

She does such cute stuff I can't wait for the rest!!!!
This is post #99.........................good things come to those who wait!
I've decided what I'm going to giveaway for my 100th post.   Follow along so you don't miss the 100th post giveaway it will happen between now and Monday!!!  And don't forget the newest Monday Mystery project started yesterday and it is hexagon ornaments/gift tags.

And for those who've been here before, if you're wondering why I changed my header.  It's because I was told by someone that people want to know who they are blogging with.  I hate having my picture taken and do my best to avoid it.  But my quiltin' chick buddy, Anna Marie, will not let us hide behind our show and tell projects at our chicks meetings.  I really try to do that, but she'll wait forever until you come out.  So, there I am with my 2nd kaleidescope quilt called "I had a wild hair".  My kids were horrified that I would put those colors together, but as a half-baked artist, I thought,why not ?
Talk to you later, I am going to be stitching some more Dawn Hay things and some of my things and maybe some of Vikki's things if she has them ready for me to try.
Hugs, Cyndi
