First of all, did you know that today is 'World Embroidery Day'? I didn't either, until I read a post from Judy HERE. What are you planning to do to celebrate the occasion? I, of course, will be working on the grand secret project!
Please excuse the picture quality on this piece! I thought that you might like to see it though, despite the poor photo. This was my 2006 entry into 'The Quilt' (the breast cancer fundraiser).
It measured 18x18" and was entitled "All I Want For Christmas"...."All I want for Christmas is an end to the disease that robs us of our mothers, sisters, grandmothers, daughters, friends and sometimes our men. Hopefully this small quilt will help."
If you can see the snowman on the mid-left - it was one of my first forays into the use of waste canvas on my pieces.
Yesterday was our monthly CQTeers meeting and the birthday celebration continued on. Sue and Irene both gave me some fun things and I thought you might like to see....
Irene made me this adorable little owl, created from an Ann Wood pattern. I promptly named her 'Hilda' and she will reside in my sewing room overlooking all I do.
Thank you Irene!
(she measures about 5" high)
Sue is the queen of all things paper (which we like to tease her about), so she gave me these pretties to create with. I know these will be showing up on some of my atc creations in the future.
Thank you Sue!!
Our theme for this month was 'strawberries' and these are the atcs we exchanged...
