At the end of my rope...

...there is hope.
Not my normal crazy quilt collage... but it was heartfelt.

Wooh this looks great Cat, I love swirls ... reminds me of New Zealand where they have a smaller swirl that has more a meaning of new life. This is a lovely & bright coloured crazy quilt collage ... thanks for sharing ... B

It's been great catching up with your blog Cat, as I haven't been over to see you for a while. Annie is gorgeous, isn't she, regardless of temporarily misplacing a leg!

Your CQ collages are fantastic as always.

Will catch up again soon.

Beautiful! I giggled at your comment about my journals because I always look at your fabric pieces and what to go hunt out fabric and embroidery threads.
Sending you a big hug!

I really enjoy your crazy quilt style. Hints of traditional stitching but with a predominantly contemporary feel. Fantastic.

Oh so true!

What a cutie Annie is, and I see the tip of her foot right behind the front one.
This piece spoke to me, HOPE should be right in the center of our being, and it is a gift from God. GREAT PIECE.

one day i am going to have a go at making my take on this little lady she is beautiful... is the fabric a cotton, do you make it single first on both sides and them sew together... it looks to be padded am i right sorry so many ???'s
it looks achieveable in that it wont take a life time to complete.
will come back again love your blog.
