This is the latest picture of the crazy heart. I've used the Elegant Stitches book for the grape vines done in stem stich and lazy daisy for the leaves. The grapes were made from Miyuki fringe beads.

The buttons and beads were added as well as the ribbon flower - ribbon is Fabulous Fibers Ribbon Glitz in Bronzite. I also used seed beads for flower center pistils and green glass leaves. The red cat head from Oriental Treasures was added just for fun.

I've added all types of beads to the red ribbon and a bone butterfly to the flower fabric.

Red lazy daisy with bead centers were sewn along the edge.

I've started the spider and he has a head and body but no legs black floss so he may be legless for awhile!!

Don't ask me why, but I have a hard time switching between the dogs and your beautiful crazy quilting! In my mind, all I can see is rough housing dogs (don't ask me why!) and your delicate work. Do they really work together? LOL!

I love seeing all the puppy pictures, and I love the crazy quilting too. Both of these things are sorely missing in my life, and I'm happy you share them with us!

What beautiful embellishment! I always love seeing elaborate crazy quilt blocks, but am not sure if I have enough patience to do them! Jen
