For example - a quilt intending to be given as a gift is no longer being gifted. The maker and owner of this quilt wanted something special done with the quilting, so I did.
Starting with feathers, matchstick, pebbles, flowers and stippling I gave it my all.
Because the quilter is also a friend I kept sending her pictures while the quilting was in progress.
After seeing the work and overall design from the quilting she has decided Not to give it away but to keep it for herself. I consider that a huge compliment. According to another friend our friend has dug through her other completed quilts and will be gifting one of those.
These are some of the pictures I sent her before completion
Each block was an embroidered flower - pretty! I guess I can see why she might want to keep this one.
Enjoy it Ruth
As some of you know a couple of my friends and I went to a tuffet class - whats a tuffet you say - well here they are along with class photos
Now after seeing our tuffets -and before we went back to put them all together I made each of my friends a tuffet pin cushion I just felt if we own a tuffet we as sewers should also own a tuffet pin cushion
You know I really should write in my blog more often because in between I am doing so much that the blog is becoming like a short story book - so keep reading if you will. There is more to tell.
Candy (my friend) and I have been popping up in the most unusual places.
The other night we went to Madison to the Aveda "Trashion show" for months my dil Sarah has been collection (and thanks to my friends I helped) plastic grocery bags. What for you say? For a crochet dress - the purpose to enter in the "Trashion Show" where all the garments were to be made by recycled materials.
It was most interesting as to what they made - I will start with Sarah's creation modeled by my beautiful granddaughter Kylee
And the lovely designer Sarah
Can you believe the dress is all from plastic bags - its amazing and the work that went into it cutting all those bags and spending all the hours crocheting it not to mention putting it all together - Applause Applause Sarah. Sadly she was only 5 votes away from first place - but wait until next year - we will see hehehehehe
Here are all the entrants 1-13
