What a busy week I have had. I haven't had much time to sew, I have started my Crazy Patch Wool Crazy though. I think I will just make one block and use it for a wallhanging. At the Cloth Castle we are having a quilt challenge based on Crazy Patch, I love the challenge it is always so much fun and really gets you to try a project you may not have done otherwise. Here is the start, I still have a ways to go but I'm having so much fun.
I recently celebrated my birthday (I confess I struggle with birthdays), but I have special people that make it a day to celebrate. My friend Trudy made me a very special pillowcase. Trudy spent a lot of time doing the hand stitching on the cuff, I just love the idea of hand stitching. I just think that there is so much love that goes into a hand made project. I will treasure this gift for years to come.
Isn't the stitching just beautiful! One of the most special gifts I have had made for me, I just love it.
A Quilt Till you Wilt friend of mine (Lee), made this Dresden Plate bag for me. Lee buys a lot of my leftover fabrics from samples and makes a lot of projects from them. I'm pretty lucky that she thought of me to make a gift for.
|My coworker Pauline made this stitching set for me. Can you believe the pin cushion and scissor case were all made entirely in the hoop of an embroidery machine!|
Well I hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Father's Day,
