Hi guys! I got word from PJ that she received my quilt on the 5th, but she's got some family stuff going on. So I'm going to post a few pics.

I was really nervous, because this isn't my usual style. But she said she likes it and I hope her little grand daughter (who it's for) does too!

A butterfly, in a collage, crazy stitch, kind of style. My themes to go with were butterflies, pink, and purple.

Some detail shots of the wings.

Had a little fun with some henna last night! It's basic, but I thought I'd share anyways.

Just received a great hat from Miss Barbara! Thank you! I'll post pictures later.

This is the wonderful slouch beret that Miss Barbara sent to me! It fits nicely and matches perfectly to a bolero I received for Christmas - exact same yarn! How AWESOME a co-incidence eh?

Thank you Miss Barbara! I love it!

7  Retro Skirt with Crocheted Accessory in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Retro_Rose on: January 26, 2012 09:04:30 AM
Hi there! I made this skirt for phnxreign99 in the January Birthday swap!

It has a crocheted flower that I made in layers to attatch to the wrap around. The wrap around is bias tape I made out of some quilting cotton.

The skirt is a basic full A-Line skirt with an elastic waist. It has a retro feel I think! Smiley

Thanks for looking! Love to hear what people think. Wink
