I'm in the process now of adding the final details to the crazy quilted hussif project. This one isn't as heavily embroidered as most that I do, but I chose to showcase some of the pretty fabrics I was able to use for piecing it.
I have stitched down the cat (former brooch) and have added the gold zodiac disc. I'm not sure of the origins of the disc - it seems too large to be used for earrings. I can't even remember how I came to have it in my stash. The sweet little fabric face was harvested from a pincushion and found a spot in the center of the disc. The seam to the left is some pre-made gimp trim that originally had beads attached to it. The fan came is a photo of a real handpainted fan that was gifted to us by the recipients grandmother.
