Blue Colour RR, Ocean Blue

Here is my block before sending off to the next person, can't wait to see the end product .....

In our group, CQforNewbies, we have started Colour RR swap, and the colour is Blue. The group that I am in is Ocean Blue.
If I remember correctly there is about 36 ladies in this swap. We have been broken up into groups of 6 and the hostess running this swap is saying this is the largest group ever she has done.
This is my first ever RR swap, and I am kinda nervous. Especially when I am going to be working on other ladies blocks, wondering if my stitches maybe ugly, crooked, not enough or maybe too much ..... geez the list goes on.
I received my first block and all I have done so far is look at it and trying to figure what the heck am I going to do.
Anyhow, I will post back later on the block I have received naked, then will post what I have done to it and keep you all up to date on the blocks.

Grand Motif Swap

A photo of my crochet motifs.

I am in a group called CQForNewbies, and there was a swap happening where the ladies could either crochet, do tatting or any kind of motif no bigger than 4". We all had to make 20 motifs, example 5 butterflies, 5 dragonflys, 5 flowers, 5 hearts, 5 baskets, 5 of anything making a total of 20. It was a joy to do. I know a little bit of crochet so I had a go, it was fun.
