I finished my Victorian boot! It's something I've been working on for several weeks. It's my first Victorian boot so naturally I obsessed over it. Since I've been taking these crazy quilting classes on line, I also joined some on-line groups to help with inspiration.
My original thought was to do pastels. But, then I was at Joann's and they were having a sale on some fancy dress fabrics in jewel tones. So, inspiration struck.
Another peacock. I know, shocker. It seems to be my thing recently.
The snow flake is done in a crochet thread that has silver metallic running through it. I was freaked out using it because it was so think and chunky.
The spider web and fan were inspired by Joyful Embellishments. I did the funky fly stitch above it to mimic the dots on a peacock feather. It's weird but honestly, what I did first was awful and had to be ripped out.
And, the kicker is ... It's for an exchange. So, I have to fill it and give it away. I'm really proud of it. And, I kinda want to keep it.
