I heart Macro

I almost captured the shimmer on this butterfly's wings.  Butterflies are like flying flowers.  Oh so pretty!

Crazy quilt block finished.

I have to say that I am rather pleased with the way this turned out.  I think Aunt Pat would be pleased too.  It was a challenge to work with so many prints so it taught me new things.

Work in Progress Wednesday


All of the embroidery is now completed.  I just have to stitch the bead journal into the center.  I hope it looks good once finished.  It feels good to be on track to finish before the end of the month!

Bead journal for January

I will be doing four circular bead journals this year.  This is the first.  I included a vintage earring on this one and hope to include something vintage on the next three.  These bead journals will be going into the center of my crazy quilt projects for corresponding months.  They are not actually crazy quilts per se but vintage blocks I inherited.  This is the first time I have planned to include my bead journal into another project.

My bead journal so far


The top photo show my bead journal where it will end up on my crazy quilt project.  I have place some beads on it to see if I like the way they look.  I took them off and stitched down some of them.  Bottom photos shows them stitched down and more placed on for further consideration.  It is coming along, I just need to take the next step.

Work in Progress Wednesday

I have added a lot of stitching to the seams so far.  It is getting close to finished.  I am pondering what I should do on the edge of these colorful fabrics.  Any suggestions?  The center will be my bead journal for the month.  I haven't made a lot of progress on that so far.
