Cora's Crazy Patchwork CD Pincushion

Hello Everyone, I just finished another Crazy Quilt CD Pincushion that I have created for a friend and co-worker. Cora is our Computer Graphic Specialist at work and she has created and printed many things I have needed to do my job. I have always been very grateful.
I shared with Cora that I had started a blog and she has been following it for sometime. Cora always tells me how she admires my creative projects. Cora especially loved the Crazy Patchwork CD Pincushion that I made for My SIS for a Christmas Pressie this year. See Lisa's blog, called Ivory Blush Roses for this pincushion tutorial.

So after the Christmas hectic pace, I decided to create a Crazy Patchwork CD Pincushion for Cora. Cora's favorite colors are mainly shades of pink, and yellow and she love roses as much as I do. I hand dyed the pink dragonfly lace and the wee daisy with beads in the middle. I used some variegated metallic flosses to make the pincushion sparkle. Cora really liked the metallic threads. I stitched the initial "C" in one of the patches. I also added some flowers beads. The wee Heart on the right side of the dragonfly says, "Friendship Is Sewn One Stitch At A Time" which I believe is a lovely message.

I gave Cora's this gift yesterday at work. She was very surprised and the gift put a big smile on Cora's face. Cora told me it was too pretty to use as a pincushion but she will put a couple of fancy pins in it and set it in her home to admire. Just seeing someone Happy from receiving one of my creations makes me very Happy too.
I can not believe I forgot to attach my New Lovely Signature that Heather created for me. Now it is too late or I would have to start this posting all over again. very sad face.So for this posting I will just say,
Happy Stitching. Hugs Judy
