This is a continuation of two previous posts about the making of the Shisha mirror embroidery quilt.
I kept adding mirrors, embroidery stitches, and beads to the quilt. I liked the process of adding mirrors to the quilt, and thought that the embroidery was relaxing. Well, at least until the cat decided to play with my thread. My 8 year old granddaughter said that she really liked it and wanted to buy it. I asked her, "How much are you going to pay me?". She said, "Well, I have a lot of pennies in my piggy bank and I think I have 20, so 20 cents." Hmm, I thought a bit, and then replied, "Do you have any other money?" She thought it over and replied, "I think I can find some one dollar bills." "Do you have $20 worth?" I asked. She said, "Maybe." We left it at that. I think I might have to make a smaller version and gift it to her. Before she left, though, she drew a picture of a hot pink skort that wanted me to make for her.
Anyway, here is a picture of the finished piece, with some close-ups.
The bird was sketched by Diane Stone, and I colorized it after I embroidered the edges.
This was really fun and different to make and I hope you like it.
