let's try this again...

Still working on my sewing block and my dog block but almost done.  I also started working on the strips for in between.  Since there are no specific cutting sizes for those strips I am having a hard time getting going on them.  I dont do well thinking outside the box!  Lori P will help me out though...she always does!  I cant wait to get it all sewn together...it's going to be wonderful just like it's name says! 
 Some Kind of Wonderful! 
I love my 'best friends' block...I inadvertantly used two different shades of brown for my girlfriends hair but that's okay....she has highlighted hair anyways! LOL

 I love shoes...my Aunty bought me a beautiful red pair of shoes from Denmark..I love them!  The heels on mine are a little lower though...can you imagine walking in these ones?  Whoa!
