Crazy Quilt style 'Strawberries n' Choclate' sewing kit progress....

Hand embroidery added, silk yo-yos sewn down...

 I added embellishment to my newest sewing kit,Strawberries n' Chocolate.I sewed on silk yo-yo's and added embroidery; next will be beads, mother of pearl buttons and glass pearls. This sewing kit has a nice feel to it with its silks and taffeta; it is lined with turquoise silk. Progress is being made. It will soon be up for sale in my etsy shop, crazyvictoriana.etsy.com . Happy Monday to you!

Back opened out.

Thanks, MA. I read your quote about walking in slush but still singing because it was spring; you know boots really would help.
