I am so excited. Now remember..... I am just a beginner. I joined Connie with her International Signature Block Swap. After I joined up, I got so nervous, but I knew this is the only way to learn. 60 people joined this group. I wonder if there are any more that are beginners like me. I worked on some blocks today and I think for a beginner they are not too bad. My "sweet honey" gave me a new sewing machine for Christmas. It is not an expensive machine, but it does a little embroidery. I am just learning all about it too. The embroidery is not as straight as it needs to be and I haven't clipped the strings or put the dots in. I thought that I would have to do the dots by hand but I just figured out that my machine will do that for me too. I loved doing this today. It was so much fun. I definitely have a lot to learn but I am still proud. I have done 4 blocks so far. I hope that I am doing them the right way. Thank you, Connie for answering all my questions and helping me. You are an angel.
