Pouch finished

The pouch I made using the new Kreinik metallic braid colors just needs a chain or neck cord. Yes, I'm leaving an empty seam,(bottom blue velvet is a small pond in the garden).
In an earlier post I mentioned I was spending the day creating something using Kreinik threads in memory of the Kreinik founder, Jerry Kreinik who passed last week. I used the image of the angel playing the violin to a nest of birds in a garden because it seemed appropriate being that it is springtime. The dragonfly, although a national symbol for friendship, represent fond memory to me. A piece of vintage tatting from days gone by, muted colors for a sense of calm and peace. All seams were stitched in the new colors of Kreinik metallic fine braids. I used a beaded rope trim that accents the muted colors in this piece to trim it out. Just something to share today before I head out to run errands. It is a bright sunny but cold 25 degree day which is fine with me.
Have a great day!


  1. Pat, your pouch is just serenely beautiful. A feast for the eyes. Thank you for posting it.

  2. Pat, it's beautiful. I'll be looking out for the new braids. I don't care for the blending filaments at all - so delicate, tangly and breakable. But I do love using the braids!
    Hugs, Diane

  3. Wow that is so lovely...well done.

  4. This is so beautiful! I don't do crazy quilting, but I do embroidery and I've just posted a piece on my blog. Would love for you to come take a look!

  5. It's gorgeous Pat!


  6. Wonderful creation!
    The colours are easy on the eye, quite restful which, I guess is very appropriate.
    Thanks for sharing.
