A pine tree with a howling wolf with purple mountains in the back and a luscious pink sky. Did you know the sky is pink when it is snowing?
Crazy quilts are mismatched pieces of fabric - usually velvets, silks and satins- and usually scraps from the Victorian era clothing. The pieces are sewn together and embellished at the seams with embroidery and ribbons. Spider webs were often sewn on the quilts as well- very Victorian and very crazy quilt. When I look at this work I can assume that the winter Olympics were going on this year. Love charms signify Valentine's and there are a few candles near the bead spider to remind me that this is also my birthday month.
