Last night I got together with the lovelies in one of my Stitching Groups. Now I should not have been too surprised as we do a group gift in our “0” year. I had been asked earlier in the year what colour range I would like to add to my stash. I chose earth tones, as sort of have an idea of what I may do for a project. All the ladies contributed 10″ squares to the gift box.
There is such a lovely variety, including some early reproduction fabrics. These may make their way into my Farmers Wife Quilt, when I decide to do some hand piecing again.
One of the lovelies also made the card in the photo – I am truly blessed to have such wonderfully talented friends. Who also share their skills and knowledge. Last evening I also saw the finest hand piecing, beautifully stitched. The secret was to use 60 weight bottom line thread. Which is available for only a few $$ in small bobbin sized spools. So you can have a large collection of colours at minimal cost. These truly are smart and talented ladies.
Anyway here are the latest additions to my stash……..it’s a little like being a kid let loose in a candy store.
