Bits And Pieces

I've been keeping busy with loads of things here!  First, I started a new project:

I used a lot of little bits and pieces left over from other projects.  The center is from a vintage hankie.  The little blue pansies to the right of it are the edge from another vintage hankie that I used on something awhile back.  The purple scalloped trim on the center right is from a vintage tablerunner.  I bought it a flea market a few years ago.  It was tattered but there was a lot of useable fabric.  I only paid a dollar or 2 for it and it's gone a long way so far with plenty left for other projects.

The seam treatment on the right took quite awhile to work.  It's a combination stitch using both my waste canvas technique for the feather stitch and then Sharon B's Crazy Quilt stencils for the tiny lazy daisy flowers.  Here's a close up:

It will show up better once I add some beads.

I did some sewing the other day and pieced up a custom order cellphone pouch along with new purses so I have some new projects waiting in the wings for when I finish up on this piece.

In other news, I'm already putting pages together for the Spring 2015 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine.  I'm really enjoying the process!  I always did like doing graphic work!

Really pretty seam treatment - how fun to combine both techniques into one!
