Remember this little piece of crazy quilting? It's the same one I was working on when I took the photo for my blog header above. After debating whether to make a pendant or a brooch out of it, I finally settled on the brooch as I often wear them, where I seldom wear a necklace, much less a large pendant.
I really love the effect of the buttonhole silk stitches on the tiny silk pieces.
The green pearls and glass leaf beads I had in my stash provided the perfect finishing touches!
It turned out lovely and I look forward to wearing it to the "Spice Party" that I'm attending with good friends tonight! It's a fun class on using spices at the Savory Spice Shop in Boulder!
