Very clever, Debra. Now if you could only figure out a way for us to actually touch your blocks! (Fun video! You've just raised the bar a few hundred feet. lol) I love the thread you used for the buttonhole wheels, and the "be happy" adds just the perfect touch! It was also fun to see all your pretty blocks together and will be interesting to see what you end up doing with them. Great project!

I enjoyed your video...and the next stitch video...and the next...haha. I had to pull myself away! I guess I am easily distracted. I loved seeing all the blocks together and the gradation from one color to the next. Each could stand on its own and it looks great together. The "Peace" signs are great and popular with the young crowd again. Everything old is new again. I also thought adding the shirt placket was very clever and fit well with the theme and the color. I thought you would have a stronger southern drawl ~ lol. Another good month for your stitching.

I was in such a funk earlier in the week that learning to make these videos (there's another on my blog) helped me get enthusiastic again.

If you have an IPhone, they are programmed to make pretty good videos.

This is the 1st time I have looked at all the blocks together. I could see some goofs that may not work (or need more work) if they are sewn as a wallhanging. But, since I had not been stitching with that goal in mind, each individual block works well on its own.

I was pleasantly pleased to see the blocks together. The gradation works pretty well!

Adding a video is one way to personalize the interaction here so I thought members would enjoy it!

Friday's video got my wow factor, so I've had two treats. Its a great way to showcase your work, especially the colour wheel graduation. I love the "feel" of your June block it's captured happiness and sunshine, perfect for midsummer.

or Hippie Dippie!

Thanks! Yes, this videographing may have opened up some new ideas. I blow dried my hair this morning and Wes's comment, "You going somewhere? Oh wait, I know, another video!" Hey, a girl has to be prepared!

Loved the video Debra! That's so cool! Your hippie-vibe theme is perfect with the flowers ("if you're going to San Francisco"....doo waah) and the peace symbol. It's fun, and the yellow-green is really fresh and always perfect for CQ. That shirt placket fits so well, and I really like the green buttons and beads with the herringbone.

It was interesting to me how different the block appeared to me when I had to audibly explain it to an audience. It's one thing in your own mind and another to an audience.

Love all your blocks, but this one is superb. Takes me right back to pre-teen years. The video is great, are you the next 'Sewing with Nancy' star?

Debra Spincic said...

Since you & I are the same age, the block does the same for me!

Fun idea for presenting your block. Love the center machine embroidered part. How fun to have used Mardi Gras beads on the block, too. Thanks for showing them all together at the end.

"Camera, lights, action" (take ??)

Cy said...

Not just eye-candy ..... now we can hear you too. Congratulations on, yet another, great idea.
Love the block too. Favourite colours with a lot of us I think. We must all be of "that certain age" that it appeals to.

Love and Peace to you.

My favorite colors are yet to come, but agree these blocks are very appealing. I'm honored to have been given the privilege to become 'that certain age' and I've earned my gray hair (lol). Peace

I'm only finishing this project so I can finally work with those purples! *wink*


Wes came home from lunch with a client and was telling me the guy was in a real pickle because he was dating a gal in her 20s and he was in his 50s (to which I replied, "He's old enough to be her dad!" ewww.)& he was trying to break it off with her. The guy says to Wes, "Are you married to a younger woman?" and Wes says, "Yes, she's 54!" (and Wes is clearly in his 60s). So the guy says, "Oh yea, she is younger!" When he told me, I started laughing and said, "Thanks, hon, but I was 54 3 years ago!" He seemed puzzled. "Well, where did I get the 54?" Me:"I was born in 54, maybe?" Ha! HA!
