Celebrating 30 years of Needlework!!!!

Again, I worked on Maxine's quilt most of the day yesterday. I did quite a bit to it but I thought I would share with you just a couple of highlights today.

First, I did this flower bunch motif using some crocheted flowers and vintage mother of pearl buttons:

My next highlight is this crocheted piece which I used as a basket and filled with flowers:

This was a little crocheted purse that came in a bag of flea market finds. I'm assuming that it was supposed to be lined with fabric and then ribbons used for handles/closure. Anyway, I sewed it to the quilt and then made some Yo-Yo flowers, added some silk leaves and then the vintage millinery forgetmenot flowers.

I'll be seeing Maxine tomorrow to re-evaluate this project. In the meantime, I need a bit of a break so I'll start a new little cellphone pouch later. Tomorrow, I'll have photos for you.

I love all the things you've added to Maxine's quilt, but I most especially like the little lace purse you turned into a flower basket! That is such a great idea!
