Above are several photos of the Crazy Quilt CD Pincushion I created for Wendy. Wendy told me one of her favorite color combination was purple, red and green. I have never put these colors together before so it was a bit of a challenge but I found I really enjoyed working with them. I had a fairy silkie that had Wendy's favorite colors in it so I based the whole embroidery theme around the fairy. My favorite flower is the rose so I added roses. I also love butterflies so I created a butterfly with metallic threads so it would sparkle. Because it was made for Wendy I decided to add her initial "W" on it too. I used a Victorian Leaf Pattern. I used silk ribbon embroidery to add extra roses and flowers. Of course I needed to add some beads to add some dimension to the pincushion. I put ric rack around the edge and stitched it on with purple and green tatting threads. I always add my initials "JG" and the date on everything I create which I put on the bottom of the pincushion.
I received a message from Wendy today saying her CQ CD Pincushion had arrived and that she love it. Having someone Love what you created for them is the absolutely the best feeling for me. It warms my heart and makes me smile that others appreciate my art. I will treasure Wendy's tatted lace motifs she create for me forever by seeing it everyday on my Crazy Quilt. Thank you Wendy very much from the bottom of my Heart.
