Put Your Thinking Cap On...and Win!

I'm procrastinating...because I don't want to work on a Halloween costume. There is a long-term project that has kept me busy for the past few months...off and on...as time permitted.  
 
Today, I added some more beads to it. Really to "them".
 
I also cleared out some magazines...and found that I had a duplicate of a dis-continued Inspirations Magazine, #11 published back in 1996. 
 
The reason I have this edition is that it has a great little pattern for a mouse pin cushion with silk ribbon (or thread) embroidery on it.
 
So, why not give it away? Therefore...let's have a contest...yeh, I here you groaning...but it might be fun! 
 
All you need to do is guess what I'm working on...and I'll give you a huge clue...it is NOT a crazy quilt block.
 
All of the pictures (other than the magazine of course) relate to this project...so, just leave me a comment...and the first person to guess gets the magazine!
 
One project is Winter Themed and the other is Springtime Themed...but both are the same thing. 
So...what are they?
Hugs,
 
10/25/15 Edited to Add: Okay, the guessing is over...and we have no winner! Guess I made it too hard...huh? There were some "close" guesses...but not correct. The correct answer is "Detachable Yokes". These will be available in my Etsy store if I ever get them done! Thanks for all the new ideas based on your comments too....ROFL! HUGS!

Bridesmaids' dresses. I know this isn't right, but wouldn't they be just beautiful? I love Inspirations magazine, but it's very difficult (and expensive) to obtain in the UK. Blessings

My first guess is vests - appliqued with beautiful laces.

Well I'm thinking Christmas ornaments and Easter egg ornaments. I've always wanted to do an Easter Egg Tree. Hmmm... I might just have to try that. I would love to see that little mouse pincushion up close and personal. Gotta be cute. Phyllis L ptl1957@hotmail.com

I think you are working Elsa and Anna costumes.

To be honest, I have no clue, but I like denim jackets decorated with various things and could easily see one for each season of the year - well maybe not summer! ;) I wanted to say ring pillows, but really, you wouldn't be making those seasonal, I don't think. And they'd probably both be white, too. Thanks! That's just fun to wonder.

Hello Kathy! How fun to have a competition!! I think you are working on two decorative baskets. Hope you finish them soon so that we can see the final works of art! They are already looking fabulous! Christine x

Denise said...

A collar (not for a dog) ;-)

Annette Castillo said...

I think it's a lace sample for a book you are working on for future publishment

Jane Raymond said...

Bookmarks?

Cyra said...

My guess is they're going to become handbags (purses).
Gorgeous work. Can't wait to see them finished.
