Lots Of Stitching Time Yesterday

I completed the stitching on my Red Hat Lady pouch:

Red Hat Lady Cellphone Pouch

Don't you just love my little green spider?!!!!

After that, I worked on Maxine's quilt for a few hours and added this motif:

Antique Crazy Quilt Embellishment

I found a whole package of these at an antique shop in Peoria Illinois. I think they were taken off of curtains or a dust ruffle. There's something familiar about them. Maybe they remind me of something my mom or my grandma had years ago.

Anyway, I trimmed the excess fabric away from the outside and then I hand painted it, sewed it onto the quilt and then beaded it.

Looking at this quilt, I feel that I'll be able to do anything I want, just as I would my own pieces. The only thing that I need to do is to keep everything in the muted antique colors. Anything new that I use will have to be "aged" with fabric dye before I use it. In fact, I "aged" a few other things yesterday and hope to have time later to work on this some more.

In the meantime, I'll be sewing up the Red Hat Lady pouch and getting it ready for it's new owner. Stop by tomorrow to see the finished pouch.

I saw the green "charm" at the top of the pouch but didn' realize it was a spider until Allison pointed it out.

I alsp love how you added the necklace to your Red Hat Lady.

Thanks for sharing.
