CQI Novice Group Anything Goes Round Robin

This is the block I have made for the CQI Novice Group Anything Goes Round Robin I will be in with Rebecca, Rosa, Rita and Sharon. I'm really looking forward to this round robin!
I had some fun making the block too. In the upper right hand corner I used a piece of dupioni silk that I had previously cross stitched a silhouette onto using waste canvas. This is one of my favourite techniques (waste canvas). I made a page of silkies today when I needed one for this block. This one came from the weekly freebie image you get if you subscribe to the newsletter at The Vintage Workshop. It is a pretty sweet little picture with the little girl and kitties. I'm a recent subscriber to their newsletter so this is the first image I have had to play with. I'm already looking forward to the next one! If they are all as nice as this one I will be buying at least one of their CDs in the near future.

So, I'm looking forward to getting a block in the mail to start stitching on soon in this round robin.
