CQJP August

Here is my August block for the Crazy Quilt year Project 2012.
It is made from a well used jeans and three well used shirts from my DH.
I have embellished it with garden- and sea themed things.
The piece of hand made lace ( I think it is crochet) was enclosed by one of the comfort hearts I received last month. I added it because of that fact and because it looks like a sea wave.
The little fish was also a gift from one of the FF ladies.
The lovely glass beads are vintage and are a gift from Susan Elliot.
The size is 20 x 20 cm.
This block is a homage to my Simon and the things he liked to do.

Dear Ati
Simon will be smiling! It's a beautiful tribute from your heart. Those wonderful red roses and his love of the sea (both things my husband loves too).
One day at a time.

Wat heb je deze mooie foto's prachtig verwerkt in het blok. Zo heb je naast de gedachten aan Simon ook wat meer tastbare herinneringen, al zul je die ongetwijfeld veel meer hebben!
Lieve groet Hannie

Heel mooi, Ati. Het kant is hairpin lace, in het Nederlands heet het guimpehaakwerk.
