A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

More fillers

I apologize in advance for these pictures - one is blurry and in another I realized that I hadn't picked out all the little bits of tissue paper I used for the pattern.  Oops.  Oh well, you get the general idea anyway!







- I know potholders aren't necessarily 'in' these days, but the pattern for THIS one is so pretty and would brighten up any kitchen, whether it be used as intended or not.

- If you crochet and have been mystified by some of the charted patterns using symbols out there, perhaps THIS might be helpful to keep on hand.

- Oh wow!  THIS is absolutely gorgeous!!!  And there's a link to the free pattern there too.  I'm not a fan of pink, but this is stunning.

- THESE would make such pretty flowers on a crazy quilt if they were made using a finer thread (pearl cotton or crochet cotton) and done individually...perhaps with a bead in the centre.

Love all of your seams. What do you use tissue paper for? Love this quote and I am guilty of living in the past at times. Lovely CQ...

Oooh, stitching beauties. Love love love your pale blue roses. You have such a lovely variety of stitches in the embellished seams.
Thanks for the lizard link, I have saved that one for gift-giving later in the year.

I'm having a moment where I think I need better glasses as I can't see the tissue paper for sure, just your gorgeous work! That quote resonates well with me in my new life!
