"Treasure" Finished

I was fortunate enough to take a one day class called "Treasure" with Lynn Payette at last  year's EAC National Seminar and this afternoon I finally finished it!  I am not fond of the finishing part of projects but really had no excuse for putting this off so long.  Now it is done, I have a nice little pin to wear!  The pin is not oversized so can be worn comfortably on a blouse or jacket.
As with all Lynn's classes, this one was a lot of fun.  We constructed our pins - everyone's a little different - from scraps of metallic fabrics and threads and a few beads.  Lots of "bling" so it appealed to the magpie in me.  I want to take everything shiny and sparkly home to my nest!
To see more from Lynn Payette, you can look online and find classes she is teaching.  Check this site out to see her beautiful birches!.

Very Pretty. I love Bling too and never have enough. I think that's what drew me to bead embroidery in the first place.

Love your brooch Kerry. I'm sure I have crow and magpie in me cause I love anything shiny or sparkly. I'm very excited because we had a new person at our sane quilting weekend and she wants to learn cq. And she only lives about 40 minutes away :).
