I have a couple of finishes from February too, this is a little Leannes House-inspired pincushion I made for a lady called Chris whose property was devastated by bushfires in Australia recently. Chookyblue told me about her when we were emailing about the Caring with Quilts appeal. Chris had stitched all the blocks for her Leannes House quilt, and lost them all along with all her stitching supplies in the fires. It touched a nerve with me, as that is one of the ongoing projects I am working on, so I asked if I could put a few stitching bits and bobs together in a bundle and send them over care of Chookyblue. I would like to say a big thanks to Sandi who owns The Art of Craft in Gore for being so generous and adding some things to this bundle too. When I was buying the threads she asked what I was stitching with them, and when I told her what I was doing, she very kindly added some bobbin cards, linen stitchery fabric, and a couple of extra DMC threads. I was blown away by her generosity, thanks so much Sandi..... quilters really are the best!
At the very last hour on the 28th I finished my True Friends Tote bag, the February Stitch-A-Long project, nothing like a deadline....lol....... I'm not sure about the overall colours I've gone with, it seems very bright! But I am pleased with how the stitchery turned out.....
So along with my little Ruby quilt, that brings me to a grand total of 3 OPAM finishes for February, the most for me in a long time.
We are weighing 3 mobs of lambs today, so no stitching here until at least tomorrow....... have a great day............ Nicky x
