For me an odd 'bit and piece' is the crazy quilt block I started in summer. I have now completed the decorations and what remains is to put a frame around the block itself.
Anyway here is the un-framed block:
It is rather overworked, don't you think?
It was made just for fun, using a kit of fabric and trimmings I bought from Hideko Ishida and her quilt group's charity wagon at Yokohama International Quilt Week last year. I have then added a variety of memorabilia from 2012 and a number of the TAST stitches we have covered this year.
These are the latest additions:
An undulating line of Chain stitches, a few spiky straight stitches in green metallic thread (which was hard to work with) and Pistil stitches for filling.
Golden pearls to fill out an empty space next to the Indian ornaments.
Pistil stitches and a line of Stem stitches connecting the Triple Lazy Daisy stitches.
Christmas light have been taken down and the night sky is very dark. That is why I changed the background of this blog to black to reflect the winter darkness. Soon, and new bright year is approaching!
