Embellishment Packs Available

EMBELLISHMENT PACKS!! I have 5 beautiful embellishments packs available for purchase. These are perfect for crazy quilting, textile art, scrapbooking, card making, handmade dolls, Christmas ornaments and other crafts!

Each pack contains a minimum of 85 pieces. They are small pieces of trims from sample books. Due to the fact that they came out of sample books, not all but some pieces still have some glue/paper on the back however, they are high quality drapery trims and are very usable! I've included photos of the backs of some of them. Some of the glue peels off quite easily and some doesn't. You can decided for yourself if you can use these. They can be sewn down by hand or glued down.

Please look closely at all the photos. Everything you see is in these photos is the contents of one package and no 2 packs are alike. I tried to mix up the colors.

$25.00 each and that includes the postage for Flat Rate Priority Mail. USA only please.
Email me if you would like to place an order.  I accept PayPal and will send an invoice.

McHenry Crazy Quilt Update

I've been working on blocks for the McHenry Historical Crazy Quilt.  I started this project a few years ago:

I have 15 blocks completed with at least another 25 to go.  Click on the image to see it close up.

The blocks are 9 inch squares.  The photos are (mostly) antique pictures of old buildings in the City Of McHenry where I live.  In a few cases, old photos just don't exist so I grab screenshots from Google Earth and then "olden" them myself in photoshop.

The blocks are pieced entirely by hand on a cotton foundation.  The only embellishments used are threads, vintage or antique lace and tiny vintage mother - of - pearl buttons.  Each block has a spider and web on it so I'm using the buttons to create the spider.

This quilt is intended to look like a traditional Victorian Crazy Quilt so no beads, no sequins, no glittery do-dads.

My most recent completed block is the old Blacksmith and Wagon shop:

Built in the 1870's, this is what the building looks like today:

Hard to believe it's the same building but it is!

Here's an ad from our local newspaper for the business:

I just started on Block #16.  Another old hotel!

A Few More Halloween Crazy Quilt Pieces

Here are a few more Halloween Crazy Quilt pieces that I did awhile ago:

As soon as my divorce is final and I can get back to something that resembles a life, I can get back to more stitching.  I really miss doing my glittery crazy quilting but I can't get to most of my supplies so I have to enjoy the photos of what I've already done.  I hope you do too!!
