I am in a rr at CQI (Crazy Quilting International) that is focused on faces. Nicki is enamoured with UTS so I tried to bring in a bit of that flavor for her. I have taken pics of both her block and then one of all her blocks together! She's got a start for a wallhanging! Enjoy!

Debbie's block

Finished up Debbies block! I was enamoured by a vintage postcard that had a car full of dolls and teddy at the wheel, so I adapted it to a front on view! I used an old earring for the steering wheel, sewed down mop buttons for the headlights and glued shisha mirrors on top of that. Hope you like it Deb!

Dimitys 2nd Block

I finally finished Dimity's (aka Diane) second block in the faces rr at CQI. I used re-purposed necklace for the head piece and a re-purposed earring for the necklace. I then embroidered the hair, secured Dimity's cloisonne' face with a peyote cabachon treatmentand beaded things up! I hope that she enjoys the block!

Landscape Wall Hanging

I finished this up so it could fly to its new home. I'd have loved to embellish more and more and more.... but, gotta stop somewhere! Hopefully the new owner will enjoy it!

Special Wall Hanging!

Christmas Fairies - sort of

Just a bit of whimsy I thought I would share! I have fallen in love with these little fairies that are made by Mark Roberts. They aren't all specifically Christmas but I just had to add them in with their other friends! One is a sugar plum fairy chef, another a gardner and a pumpkin.... they are all sooo fun! Enjoy!

Todd & Melissa

Debbie Quirion's son and daughter in law recently lost their home to fire. I decided to create a wall hanging for them based on their wedding picture. I added a cq frame, printed the picture on cotton, beaded the bodice and veil or the bride and embellished the frame! Now to get it off in the mail!
