Now to introduce you to the stitching that was enjoyed at Retreat this year.
Pillow cases from the kits I purchased while in Hawaii. These pillow cases went together really easily and I would love to make more in the future, I first need to work out how to add the envelope pocket to the open end like the pillow cases I’m used to here in Australia.
Not strictly stitching, although knitting does involve stitches! I knitted this little beauty while sitting in front of the fire on Saturday night, by then I was a little sleepy and knitting was the best I could manage.
My version of the Charm Square bag made by many others at Retreat, it was easily put together, but watching the others “give birth” to their bags through the gap in the lining was interesting to say the least……. I think next time some may opt for the “C-section” method of placing bag and lining wrong sides together and binding the top in the hope of a quicker recovery time!!!LOL
I also managed to get the binding stitched to the Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt, but photographic evidence was not recorded, once the hand stitching’s done I show it off.
More of our work is displayed on Cath Walkers blog if you would like to visit, she also has a new design in the pipeline some of you may be interested in, so well worth the trip.
My holidays have now begun, so for the next two weeks I will be enjoying a sleep in and catching up with all those things that seem to elude me during the term. I have also created a mini-retreat in my sewing room, meaning I have gathered a few special projects and plan on working on then to their completion……stay tuned for developments!
Thanks for visiting,
