Merry Christmas!

年の瀬も押し迫り、クリスマスです。しばらくブログにもご無沙汰していました。針を持っていないわけでもないのですが、片づけや掃除の方に忙しくしています。これは10年前、クレージーを始めた最初の頃、西も東もわからずまずは布のピーシングとシームステッチを練習していた時に作ったものです。今見るととても寂しいのですが、"very victorian" とネーミングされた布セットの色合いその他に 今も愛着があります。Flight of Fancy Butique のクリスマスカラーのレースモチーフやボタンのセットを足しました。   

I've added embellishments from Flight of Fancy Butique on my very plain crazy quilt I made ten years ago when I was a beginner. I didn't know anything about crazy quilting then; what kind of fabrics to use, how to piece them, how to do seam stitches. I had to learn everthing by myself. I bought a fabric set for crazy quilting named "Very Victorian" (isn't it nice naming?) of some Ebay shop and tried to piece them and did seam stitched with my best efforts. But it's too simple and plain and seems more embelishments required for present point of view after ten years. Isn't it better now?

It looks much nicer now Hideko. Isn't it wonderful that as we go along we always learn more about stitching.

I think it is much prettier now, Hideko, but it was pretty before too. I think it is so hard to finish a piece of cq because we always think to ourselves, "One more thing... one more thing to add..." lol
