Beaded Brooch

My current project is this little pink Crazy Quilt cellphone pouch.  My aunt asked me to make one for her for a gift so here's an update:

And here's a closeup of the beading I did around the brooch:

This is a little vintage Petit Point brooch that I bought a few years back at a garage sale.  I think I paid $1.00 for it.  It worked nicely with this piece so I beaded around it.

My chores (except for laundry) are done for the day so I'll get to stitch on it some more now.

Also, mom gave me a couple of new Hanging Heart Door Hangers to add to our Etsy shop:

Mom made this one from a pretty floral print fabric.  And the pink one is made from a vintage embroidered linen and vintage crocheted lace:

I simply can`t imagine having the patience and or eyesight to do petit point...the detail is incredible. Your mom definitely has a knack with door hangers too (say hi to her for me).
