This is my newest piece created for a lovely, Etsy client.
She asked if I could repeat a sold item, which
I am almost always thrilled to do.
This pear pincushion is one of my favorite pieces.
I embroidered and embellish crazy quilt style patchwork.
I've added some vintage trims, beads, lots of embroidery
and a bit of my love for crazy quilting.
I don't know if I'll be making on another soon. It took nearly a month to complete and my old fingers and joints are none too happy right now. But each ache and each callous seems well worth it when I'm finished. I hope she loves it as much as I do!
I just received feedback from Vicki on her pear. These are her very kind words I am proud to share with you...
"This is absolutely beautiful -- the stitches are amazing and beautiful. This is definitely one of the most original and incredible pieces that I have ever bought from Etsy. Your talents are just amazing -- thank you so much for this piece --- I love it more than I can ever say!"
This is why I love to create and share my work. Somehow each piece seems to go to the perfect home. Thanks so much Vicki for inspiring this pincushion.
I recommend that you visit Vicki's blog, 2 Bags Full. And her Etsy Shop, vboster. She creates beautiful, amazing fiber nests. Each one is truly a work of art....
