Hello Everyone, I have just completed embroidering 12 little 9 inch quilt squares for a baby quilt. I will be putting it together today at church in our quilting group, and it will be for sale at our church bazaar in November. The summer here is so hot that it is a great time to stay indoors and work on handwork. I was taught as a child how to embroidery. My mother was a great seamstress and could do crewel embroidery, regular embroidery with all the different stitches, as well as needlepoint and quilting, so I learned them all before I was a teen. By my teen years, I made all my clothes. I always loved anything at all that you use your hands and is a bit creative.
These squares were already printed with a design. I found them on the internet and they were very inexpensive. Many of them were worked on while my husband was in the hospital with knee surgery and I was with him. It sure helped pass that time!
I will be setting the quilt up with pink checked gingham fabric and will post the finished quilt.
This cute pincushion is not one I made; I bought it in a new shop we have here. I thought I might make some similar myself to sell at our bazaar.
It is one you can wear on your wrist...see the elastic band? Underneath it, on the back the lady who made it wrote "Sew Pretty". Neat, isn't it? I just love anything with "yo-yo's" on it!
