Skagit Valley Tulip field pictures from April

Have been meaning to get these up. The tulips were wonderful this year. I got to share them with my sister, Angela, and her husband Tommy this time. We had a great visit. Even Mom was doing better with her new aortic valve. It was even a lovely day.

They planted tulips up in a tree!

Newest CQ - Covered Tin

Here's my latest CQ project - a CQ covered Altoids tin. It's for an ICQ swap.

Front - Used orange lace on tape around Altoids tin.
I put a ribbon tab on top of tin.
CQ top using silk brocade and wool.

Lined tin interior

Used Pandora style-like beads for feet. Attached with metal brads to the cardboard bottom.
