Another Crazy Quilt Trinket Block

I finished stitching up another Crazy Quilt Trinket block yesterday:

The little snowman cross stitch piece was designed by Meridel Abrahms.  She did the design quite a few years ago but I always loved it so I stitched up last Summer for this crazy quilt project.

At the top right-hand corner of the snowman piece, you'll find a beautiful vintage rhinestone earring.

At the bottom in the center is a Czech Glass Button that I bought from Ebay a long time ago.

I've been working on this trinket quilt for awhile now.  I put it down when things were so chaotic with my husband's cancer treatment.  I decided to go back to it 2 weeks ago when I lost Lucy.

I still have a lot of great little things that I've collected over the years so I have no idea how many blocks there will be.  A lot of them!!!  I'm working on Block #26 now.

I plan to keep going until I use all my little things.  I'm keeping the backgrounds all pastel.  I may end up putting together several quilts depending on how many blocks I have when I'm done but that's a long way down the road.  For now, I'll just keep stitching.

And with flea market season just around the corner, there may be more trinkets!!!

Took me a minute to spot the snowman I was immediately thinking St. Patrick’s day! Love the block and how you incorporate cross stitch in your work! Can’t wait for flea market season although I need no more trinkets!
