Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party!
Why not pick up your project and put in a few stitches today? That's exactly what I'm planning to do this afternoon. I started knitting a dishcloth with a bee skep pattern from an old book called "Garden Dishcloths" that my friend Debby found. I am really enjoying this project so I plan to do some knitting.
This week I finished embroidering the word "home" in the centre of a pieced block which will become part of a donation quilt.
I also want to share with you a bit about the Mennonite Relief sale and quilt auction that happened yesterday. Although my sewing group didn't have a quilt to donate this year, I was inspired to get working on our group project for next year.
Here is a terrible selfie of me volunteering at the sale. I think I got a bit dehydrated and started to feel unwell, so I didn't stay until the end like I usually like to do.
Since covid, they have capacity to include online bids, and you can see on the photo below on the TV screen where the bids are coming in from (across Canada and the USA).
There was so much inspiration to take in! I love to hear ladies oooing and ahhhing , pouring the details of gorgeous quilts. There was a lot of that going on!
One of my favourite quilts was this tiny little treasure named "Wheel of Fortune" made with exquisite workmanship by Henny Bremer.
-62 different fabrics
-size 11" x 8 "
Quilt Addict Tulip Time" which reads: "Am I a quilt addict? Well yes, Oh no, Yes yes yes, Shhh maybe, No I am not, Yes I am today, Define addict?" Well that covers all the possible answers! LOL
Paisley". It didn't show well from a distance, but up close, this quilt was so beautifully done.
I hope you were inspired by my photos to pick up your stitching and make some progress today. And please link up your blog or instagram post below so we can enjoy your creativity.
