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.

Your work is stunning.

Tanya said...

Your red octagon is so pretty! How do you know when you've added enough embellishments?

Shami Immanuel said...

Nice card. I always admire how u apply the embroidery stitches. Red cq block is also perfect.

Linda Calverley said...

Lovely rich colours and embellishments.

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.

Red and gold ARE good together, aren't they?

Queeniepatch said...

I agree, it looks very rich!

Queeniepatch said...

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

Queeniepatch said...

Ha, ha, I don't! I guess I either run out of space or run out of steam! I sure have not run out of stash!!!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you Shami. I love creating and thinking up which stitch to use where.

Queeniepatch said...

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

Queeniepatch said...

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.

Janie said...

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

Queeniepatch said...

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.

My birthday is on Halloween ... hint hint ... That will sure be a wonderful prize for getting a year older.

Queeniepatch said...

So for your card I have to dig out my orange, purple and black scraps of fancy fabric?

Thank you!
