5-zie #2!

I finished the second 5" square for the Winter/Christmas theme swap! It's being run by Jillayne of "A Fine Seam".  You can check out her blog  here.
It began with a pink variegated, hand-knit, mohair blend square. Layers of fabric and ribbon were added, and topped with a burgundy organza, then machine quilted onto felt with burgundy thread.

        5-zie # 2 !
A background of knitted, pink, mottled mohair
Was the beginning for my second 5-inch square.
A pattern of off-white, needle tatted lace
Was carefully created and sewn into place.
Mounds of it piled like a wee drift of snow,
That, in daylight or moonlight, would sparkle and glow.
And onto the snowdrift in circles of white
Was a beautiful Snowlady. What a delight!

Her scarf is dark purple, her felt hat is blue,                                         
 She has a carrot-orange nose, and blue bead buttons, too.
The sky's full of snowflakes, some large and some small.
They turn and they sparkle as we watch them fall.

This Snowlady rests on quilted burgundy,
But you can remove her to hang on your tree.
Now I better get working on 5-zie # 3!
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz

  5. this is gorgeous, love that lace.

  6. it is very beautiful Susan..loved the colours..

  7. Karen, thanks for visiting! I'm glad you like my lace. Gee, I wonder how it would look on one of your beautiful embroidered fabrics?

  8. Hi Lakshmi, and thank you. I do love the burgundy. I use that instead of the traditional red for Christmas. ( I look terrible in red...just not my colour)
