More Christmas decorations

Got these ones finished and on the tree.  I have 1 more to do plus I would like to redo the Santa didn't have the correct gray beads.


This is a work in progress.  It is taking forever.  The fringe will go all the way around.  It is a small ornament cover.

Crocheted Angels

These are hand crocheted angels that I made about 11 or 12 years ago.  Unfortunately I used starch to stiffen them and they are starting to yellow quite badly.  Will have to start replacing them one of these days.

This is what I have been working on lately

Taking a short break from the CQ seam stitch along to get some Christmas decorations made.








Not too sure if I like these ones or not




Will take and post some pictures of my crochet work from quite awhile ago.

Here are seams 3 - 6

Not sure if I will ever catch up but will keep plugging away.



I am keeping a note book which will tell me down the road what size threads/ribbon etc was used.

It has been awhile and for that I apologize.

Been going through tests and tired of writing about my health problems. 

Have not been able to work on the 2020 CQ challenge but did start (slowly and am behind already) the 500 seam challenge with Kathy Shaw.  The idea is to do a seam a day until all 500 are done from her new book.  I already had the book and figured that is something easy I can do but will be behind a lot.

Here is seam 1 and 2.



Will try to post more regularly.

Eye Candy from ICQC105 class

Here are my finished products (except for 1 of them) from the last Kathy Shaw class.

I decided to frame them and put them on shelves and up on the wall.




The funky flower project is still waiting to be framed then it too will go up on a wall.  I find that they add an interesting focal point and definitely adds color.

Personal Challenge (formerly my 2020 challenge) First block.

Not completed but I have had so many other things going on.  Figured it was about time I showed a picture.


The cretan stitch seam with the red arrows is waiting for some sequins or Fargo Roses.

The feather stitch seam is waiting for some bullions.

The chevron is waiting for some Brazilian cast on stitches.

The double herringbone is waiting for some sequins or beads (haven't decided yet).

The side seam by the tree will be some shiny fiber couched down in a zig zag shape with some type of small flower embroidered.

The bottom section will be some type of brazilian flower.

 The section beside the tree with be some type of silk ribbonflower.

The middle section with the tree will have a 3 dimensional butterfly which will be the last thing added.

That is as far as my thought process has gone so far.

I am not going to stress the 2020 unique items nor even getting it done on a certain time so guess it is going to be changed from a 2020 challenge to a personal challenge.
