WIPW - Crazy Card

I have two things to show for Work In Progress Wednesday today.

Crazy for Crazy
More embellishments have been added in the form of stitches and beads.
Next step will be to add the bias tape edging.



A Crazy Quilt Card
I made a birthday greeting card by inserting a small cq block in this window card.
I used a variety of stitches, made a thread button and a spray of Figure-Eight Knot Stitch flowers.

    1. Thank you, but I have got lots of inspiration and know-how from Sharon Boggon's book, however, there is PLENTY more to learn!

    1. Yes, something like golden jewelry on a velvet tray at the jeweler's shop?

  7. The beads add that little extra to the hexie and the binding will finish it off. What a joyful birthday card. I like everything about it. Someone is going to be happy to receive it.

    1. Beads really need to be added last as the thread catches on them. It takes time and patience to do the finial part of a cq block, I think.

  8. Beautiful sparkly additions, Queenie. Nice arrangement.
    And the birthday card is delightful, I agree, 'Someone will be
    happy to receive it.'

    1. Thank you.
      I guess some blocks will have more tones and shades in them, but this red block is very even in colour and as all embellishments are in gold only, you just need the addition of sparkly beads.
