Crazy Quilting March Block

Today I'm sharing my March block for the  CQ 2014 Challenge.  This block will be added to my   Lovely Ladies Sampler that will be put together at the end of the year. I have decided to alternate my blocks with colors and cream to give each block more pop. Hope it works out but as you well know the  best laid plans usually go awry. So I'm hoping, regardless  that it will be pretty:)
Today I'm linking up to  Etsy Cottage Stitchery for our monthly Wednesday Blog Hop:)

Spring Chicks

It looks like time got away from me again, and I have no excuse, well besides physical therapy and getting caught up with my regular swaps:) Sharing my latest "Spring Chicks" paper dolls for the Roses Group and meeting the Challenge of using Eggs some way on our dolls. Crazy and fun!




Meet Bella and Char! Our Swap challenge was to use eggs, egg shells or egg images in some creative way on our Chickie dolls. As you can see I used Eggs shells for their Easter Baskets and Dresses. Shells can give some really great texture and was fun. I used spray inks for color and let them dry, then I placed the newly colored shells between 2 pieces of wax paper and rolled them with a rolling pin. I used a brush to spread my glue on like paint and while wet I added the shells. After drying you can shake off any excess. They seem to have adhered very well with no problems.
