Crazy Quilting Friday

I found a cute pig for my centre this week. I might do more embellishments later, when more inspiration hits me. 
I finally found my old tatting shuttles and did a few pieces, to add to my crazy quilt squares. I was glad my tatting skills only needed a bit of practice to gat back into it. My first shuttle belonged to my grandmother Pearl and is a french ivory one (celluloid) and was  probably made in the 1910s - 1920s.
I tried some different embroidery, the little butterflies on the lower left were fun to do.


This this little piggy reminded me that my husband's grandmother's maiden name was Pigg. I think I will embroidery the name Nora somewhere on it for her.
