PIN KEEP SWAP
When my friend Cherie told me of a "Pin Keep" swap I just couldn't pass up the opportunity.
My mind began swirling, all sorts of idea's popped into my head...One kept coming back...a Witch.
Now I don't normally do Prims...I love them but I think eclectic is more my style LOL I'm all over the board when it comes to decorations...it works for me. I guess when I think Prims, I think Halloween, country, dark and homey. I sketched out a few designs for a witch. The pin keep had to be on a pedestal so when I found a piece of Birch in the wood pile, it seemed like a perfect pedestal for a Woodland Witch. The wood had a fork which then gave me the idea of a companion "pin keep" and what better companion for a witch, then a spider ? As I sketched, she evolved into something I could actually see, so I drew up a pattern, then worked on a spider pattern. In the mean time I contacted my "Partner" and asked her about herself. One of the questions was "Favorite holiday". Her response was "you may think I'm nuts, because most people would say Christmas, but I LOVE Halloween "...First thought? This was a partner sent from heaven. That and I wouldn't have to rethink my Witch design. I've been away at a quilt show in Paducah KY, so I didn't know about posting pictures...better late then ever...I introduce my original design "Woodland Witch and Friend".
Hope you like her.....
