Wednesday WOW – September 12

The worktable is looking pretty messy today.

P9120001I pulled out some old kimono silk scraps and started some crazy patch pieces.  I don’t remember where I got these scraps, but they are really just scraps!  Nothing more than about six inches across, so crazy patch it is.

P9120002 This shows a couple of them while I tried out some trims.  Nothing stitched down yet.

P9120003A couple of hours later, there was some embroidery done – still a bit to go – and a much bigger mess! 

I like the stitching that goes into crazy patch work, but I do not usually have the patience to finish large pieces.  These will become postcards or journal covers eventually. 

It’s nice to just sit and stitch sometimes.

LOL, I know how you feel! I used to love making CQ postcards, and I do enjoy doing bigger CQ blocks (no bigger than 10" though), but I tend to drag my heels when I'm about half way through the embellishing process.
