Lots more CWLL blocks loaded

 I loaded 27 more today for a total of 109.   Here are a couple of my favorites.   The one above is A Good Straw Bed.   I felt the tan material reminded me of a good straw bed and the purple just seemed right with it.

 This one is Provisions and I had a great time picking green and brown fabrics for it.  I wanted it to look like tasty provisions.

 This one is called Sickness and I felt the blue and tan fabrics, their colors and designs made me feel a bit nauseous, i.e. sick.  I love the small flag in the center.
Thank you Rosemary Youngs for these wonderful books!!!

 This one is called Whizzing Bullets and it took some time to find the right combination of fabrics to give me the feeling of whizzing bullets.
