Pin Up Girl Crazy Quilt Hearts
I love pin up girls. The new ones are pretty but I'm talking the older pin up girls... 50s & 60s. Yes, 2 weeks later I am still feeling creatively tapped out but i'm talking embellishment wise, not quite design wise. On Election night, as a matter of fact, as the votes rolled in I sat and worked on these hearts. They were a lot of fun but I learned that I should have enlarged the heart so that I could get a little more area to work on. Regardless, I will finsih them, and they will be mine. I don't have anything that I have CQed that I own to show. So I thought these would be a fun set of pieces to keep, and I hope to add to my collection by hosting a swap for these next year!
She came first. Notice i couldn't resist immediately adding a beautiful rhinestone trim on her. My plan is to take feathers and from behind pop the feathers through around her boa to make it look real. A lot of fun (and an experience that'll be eh?!... like making a wig! I better google a how to there!)
Lastly, came this gypsy like gal. I love gypsies so the idea of a gypsy like pin up girl in front of the moon?! A-1, first class craziness! She's actually not topless, although you cannot tell in this picture.
So what you see is what you get! That is how the sit right now because I am a bit busy with other things and still kinda feeling like: ??? what do I do with these??? As if I've never embellished anything before. It's ok, timing is everything and it will come to me! Stay tuned!
