On the 12th day of Christmas...

The extremely gifted artist Pilar Pollock, of Laguna Hills, CA made for me... 
A cleverly wrapped gift, which is tucked inside a small brown lunch bag that has been sewn closed and embellished...
with a lovely gift tag of collaged papers, fibers, felt heart, silk leaf, and metal star - all tucked inside a little pocket of clear vinyl and sewn to the gift  bag. Very kewl, Pilar!
And look at the beautiful creation that has been patiently waiting to be revealed for so long now - this is a fiber artist's dream!!  Pilar - this is amazing!
You really must go to Pilar's blog to read about how she made these fabric milagro ornaments.  I love the copper etched milagro that she made for the focal point of her creation.
Just look at all the hand beading and free-motion stitching on the little felt heart?  Oiled and resin papers are layered on the felt heart. Beautiful!

Pilar  coffee dyed muslin strips and machine embroidered them for that lovely tassel. She added a vintage mercury glass button as the final touch.

Pilar, thank you so much for this wonderful gift, and for bringing our annual Adorn swap to a fabulous close.  Merry Christmas!
