I love this time of the year.  The Honeysuckle starts climbing and seems to burst into bloom overnight.  And I love the smell.  Walk past a patch of Honeysuckle and your this awesome burst of fragrance.  Our Honeysuckle is in full bloom right now. 

This is a close up of the Honeysuckle Blooms.....

The area where this honeysuckle is, is it's own eco system.  You have Honeysuckle, Trumpet Vine and Pokeberry all growing in this same spot.  The Trumpet Vine and Honeysuckle have grown up the side of the house.
The poor Pokeberry has gotten bent down with all the weight of the vines.  The wind will also knock it down if it blows hard enough.  This is the base of the Pokeberry.

These are the berries hanging on the stems.

I've finished block 5 of my 8 1/2" block. 
The sunflower triangle has a piece of yellow cord, couched down.  The pink and white ribbon has Bullion Knots on it.

I'm currently working on block 6....
I'm working on the shell fabric at the bottom right.  The clear round button is my version of an octopus.  This frilly stuff is a piece of Eyelash trim...my grandson brought it home to me.  He had a  piece left from an art project.  Haven't quite figured out what to do with piece of marble fabric yet....any suggestions will be appreciated.

8 1/2 Crazy Quilt Block

I've finished 3 more blocks....
Block 2

 This block has a Silk Flower...I put a piece of lace down...attached a silk flower with a button.  Then embroidered some vines.  The little pink flowers on the vines are Bullion Knots.
Block 3
This block has a spray of buttons on it.  With some ribbon down the right side.  The Silk Flower is on a piece of burlap and is attached with a button.

Block 4
I put a piece of Blue Ribbon on and used Buttonhole stitch to hold it done.  Then added buttons.  Arrow stitch is between the buttons.
