This is a new pillow that I started a couple of days ago. I am using whites and creams and all muted colors in the embellishments. I put my silk ribbon in a brown dye bath to help mute the brightness of the colors. The butterfly is one that I painted some time ago. I'll post again on the progress.
If you are interested in Crazy Quilting you should go to Pat Winters blog. She has a new CQ Magazine on the market, but you have to order from MagCloud. The magazine is awsome, some of the best CQ artist around are featured in this first edition.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Today I have been busy making a couple of valentines to put in my booth. If I ever get to get out and go to the mall. We still have ice everywhere and I'm not getting out of my drive way until it is gone or very mushy. A few days ago I was looking at Sharon's blog "My Vintage Studio" and she listed some beautiful vintage valentines to share with us. And my two valentines are made with her beautiful valentines. So I thought I would let everyone enjoy them too.
I love this beautiful lady with her gorgeous hat.

The feathers are some I picked up this summer over at Rick's. They live buy a canal and the ducks come to his house to eat. They are all so beautiful.

This is the second valentine. I used a white hanky, red lace on burlap. Made a rose out of net and one of my moffits.

Don't you love the pearls around the outside edge. I know I sure had fun making them. Thank you Sharon for sharing. I have so many of your vintage postcards and valentines. Hope everyone is staying warm in this winter ice storm. They are saying we may get snow tomorrow night. I'm ready for the 70 degree weather to come back. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful night.
