Since monday we have a new companion, our Ruby (officially Only You of Wundering Heights), born on June 16th. A very cute yellow labrador puppy, but oh boy, did I miss a lot of sleep this week.....
The good thing is that with staying up that late at night watching over her, I managed to do a lot of stitching to my Peacock Crazy Quilt. I am making the blocks for the CQJP2014. If you click on the link, you can see pictures of all participants.
I finished two blocks this week.

The peacock in the middle is an antique embroidered applique. This is also the middle block of the quilt, which will be the focus point.
The four corners will all have fan blocks, this is the first one I have finished.
The quilt is becoming very bold and colorful, unluckely the pictures don't do it justice.
I would love to finish the top of this quilt to show on the Crazy Quilt Retreat of CQI in Kansas City, that I will be attending in September.

Missing in action....

Today I want to show you some Crazy Quilted postcards I have made. 

The first one I made for Helina in Finland. Unluckely it didn't arrive until now. 
It is made in cottons with a print after a William Morris wallpaper, silks and vintage laces and is handembroidered.

Both cards have in the middle a print of a French postcard from the Thirties. I personally love the colors of both. 

I especially love the color combination of the second one, it is in orange, hot pink, brown and sage green. You can find this postcard in my Etsy shop.
