Happy with progress on Crazy Quilt sewing kit....

"Prairie" #2 sewing kit, back opened out...

Braid added, feather stitch too.

I added braid and hand embroidery to the pocket.
 I've made some progress I'm happy with. I was fixating on embellishment choices last week.Then it dawned on me that I was getting burned out! So back to having fun with inspiration and looking at other projects and just generally relaxing a little. It's amazing how easy it is to forget that. A good place for inspiration is Sharon B's WIP Wednesday . Tresors de Luxe blog is very inspiring and there are always great examples of beautiful compositions and lovely embellishments. I consider mixed media another form of crazy quilting.

Closer view of embellishments and felted wool needle keep.

I like this view with the prairie points and embellishments together.
