New stash

My mom added some great items to my stash this past week while visiting her newest granddaughter. She and my dad went to an auction of a former egg decorating business and picked up some fabulous items. Just look at the bag full of goodies..... Many of the items are Sworski crystal embellishements.

These flowers are about the size of a nickel in diameter and about 1/4 inch high...

I have a bunch of these small 1/4 inch rings of crystals...

There are also a great selection of metal motifs. I really like the sprig of leaves.

A few different crystal flowers and pearl beads.

The one on the left looks like a crown and is about 1/2 inch tall.

I see all sorts of possibilities to incoporate these into a crazy quilt.
