Crazy Quilt CD Pincushion

Hello Everyone, I thought I would share with you all a Crazy Quilt CD Pincushion I made for a dear friend for Christmas. I found the tutorial for this CQ CD Pincushion on "Ivory Blush Roses" blog last August and immediately fell in love with it. Lisa called her CQ CD Pincushion, Sea Dreaming and it is very beautiful. Lisa has a wonderful creative blog. I totally used 100% hand dyed wool fabric to create my CQ CD Pincushion. This photos shows a Dove.
This view shows a Christmas Tree stitched with DMC Jewel Effects threads to give the tree some glitter.

The snowman I created from 100% wool and felted it right onto the the wool fabric.
I also used silk ribbon to create the poinsettia shown in this photo. I also used Chenille Ric Rac and used the Dorset Feather Stitchery Couching technique to keep in place. I also used this lovely Chenille Ric Rac around the bottom of the Pincushion to cover where the 2 CD meet.

And of course any project would not be completed unless you sign and date it. I enjoyed creating this CQ CD Pincushion so much I reckon I will create one for myself in the new year.
Take care all and have A Wonderful Holiday Season. Judy
