I will add a few close up shots so some of the little trinkets, beads and stitches can be seen. I just adore this little spider [with BLING]. I've been saving him for something like this!! He's actually a lapel pin, but fits in beautifully with the crazy patchwork mantra - must have a spider. Okay, the must have fan is somewhere on here too!!!
I have also used threads, braids and beads I've 'accumulated' over the years. Lots of the little beads I purchased from a lovely store which was in our local town, but sadly had to close. The lovely plaited gold/cream braid [just visible in the very last photograph] I purchased from a store not far from here. It has the greatest supply of knick-knacks you'd ever think of, but displayed very badly. I would spend some serious money in there if I could just see what was actually in there!!! My friends have heard me speak of it ad nauseum.
|These photos just seem to be out of sequence to how I'd like them. I am not used to Blogger's new way of uploading photos, so please bear with this post, as it is not the most regimented!!!|
