Even More Crazyquilting

First, I would like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who sends me emails and leaves comments for me here & on my Flickr site. I'm very happy to know that I have so many readers who enjoy my blog, my patterns and my photos everyday! Posting to my blog is almost like writing a little magazine article on a daily basis. I enjoy thinking about what to share each day and it's become an important part of my daily routine.

I completed the green santa ornament yesterday. It just needed a few more do-dads:

Christmas 3

I really just added a few snowflakes in the corners and that completed it. I'll be sewing the ornaments up next week.

Once the santa was completed, I started on this pillow for my mom. It's a 10 inch block and doesn't quite fit on the scanner so I'll do the next update with the camera. In the meantime, here's the photo of what I've done so far:

Moms Block

Ok, I didn't get very far on it! I actually had another seam covered but decided I didn't like the way it looked so I pulled it out. And as you can see, the lace piece that I was playing with yesterday has been changed. It didn't quite work with my grandmothers necklace which I have to somehow incorporate into this so I went with rose appliques instead.

You'll get to see the necklace next week sometime. I haven't quite decided on where to put it yet but I think I'll have to somehow weave it in with some silk ribbon embroidery which most of you know by now, is not my favorite needlework technique to do but I love the way it looks.

I find SRE to be rather fussy. It's not supposed to be that way. It's supposed to be a very forgiving technique. Maybe I'm too picky about how mine comes out and I've found that a Laying Tool helps when working with it.

I just love the pillow you are working on for your mom. It is looking so elegant.
