Dancing Buttons Bangles and Beads

Click on photos to enlarge them. My friends from near and far came up with many possible names for this piece, all wonderful suggestions, so I took a few words from some and combined them with my own ideas for the title "Dancing Buttons, Bangles, and Beads".
It's free motion top sewn felt pieces over burlap, both from thrift store...cotton fat quarters,
thrift store ribbon...cotton threads...

Metal pieces thanks to Judy at Red Velvet...a gift...
Angelina fibers and wool roving from Susan Stein's Minnesota quilt shop.


Hand embroidered over stitching, wooden beads garage sale gleaned,
big buttons from a quilt show visit last year, knew I'd use them sometime on something!

Very cool piece. Love the beading and stiching around the border!

Sandra said...

Looks very good!
Yet a completely other question: you often react on my blog, thank you for that, but when I answer your comment I always get two automaticly generated messages. First that my email is delayed and second that the server was unable to receive your mailbox. So, is it true you never get my answer??

Lynn said...

get zapped, thanks for coming by and glad this dances for you!

corryna, thanks for noticing my growth.

Seth, thanks nice that you are here too and happy you like the added work on the border.

Sandra, you may be trying to send to a "no reply" address...so I may not be getting those...if you respond on your blog and I have remembered to check the box I will get the comments left there. Let me know if you got this one.
