We may have been few in numbers (a lot of quilters flew home for Christmas or met up with family elsewhere…like Disneyland!) but that doesn’t mean the Sands’ Clubhouse wasn’t humming with chatter and machines!
Check out some of the works in progress….
Doris’ hand work is gorgeous! These will become keepsakes for sure!
Kim made these wee wool wall-hanging up from kits…adorable!
Doris is also the queen of handbags…she can whip up a bag faster than anyone I know and they are ALWAYS beautifully done, with multiple pockets and tabs…a work of art!
Tie tabs and a magnet for a closure! Lovely!
Kim was working on her Dresden Plate quilt! Magnificent with her Kaffe Fassett prints! Her Dresden plates are finished and now she is machine appliqueing a leafy border…stay tuned for the grand finale!
Kim’s hand work is finished too…and she is all set for gift giving NEXT Christmas! These are Bird Brain Stitcheries…only instead of making a wall hanging or quilt, Kim sandwiched them with poly batting (for extra poof) and is now machine quilting them…Notice the little blue ribbon at the top, turning them into little hanging decorations! Very clever!
More in progress….
All quilters NEED a hand stitching project for the RV…this is Kim’s next project for Easter! Cute…eh!
Lindsay finished her quilt top and let me tell you, it is STUNNING! She knew as soon as she found this kit that it would make the perfect gift for her daughter. Her daughter moved to foreign lands…and mama wants her to remember HOME!!
What better way to bring the Canadian forests to her daughter and all the activities that she loves…like canoeing, hiking, camping…and wrestling bears!
Our goal as mothers, is to make our children as homesick as possible…we WANT them to miss us like crazy…and I think Lindsay’s quilt will achieved that!! Well done, Lindsay!:o)))
I hope everyone is out of the ‘deep freeze’ by now…and NO, I’m not talking about the freezer…looking for the last of the butter tarts and shortbread! (and yes, I have already DONE THIS! haha) I’m actually talking about OUTSIDE! I know it has warmed up nicely here and promises to be another gorgeous day! I say BRING IT ON! I need to wear off the butter tarts and shortbread! Yowzers!
Have a SUNNY Sunday and Happy Stitching!~P
