Some time ago I told you I was determined to try some quilting. And I made a start! I finished a little totebag, called 'Holland tasje'. I bougth the design and fabric in Deventer, Quiltshop 100 Roses, some weeks ago. And now I can brag a little bit about how difficult it was, but how perfectly handsewn! Look and judge!
I also have some progress on Oakhaven SAL, finished until September now.
And Vibrant Vista has a real American flag now. I changed it a little bit, because while stitching and using the colours as charted, I noticed the stars weren't visible. And how about an American flag with only stripes? No way, although I am not an American woman, that just isn't done! So I added some white stars and here she is: The well-known Stars & Stripes! I have to admit I have been thinking about changing it into a Dutch flag, but then I considered the artwork isn't Dutch at all, so why change it if it is not for the better?
Being so proud on achieving my goal (Holland tasje) I spent part of the afternoon cutting squares and triangles for a real (small) quilt. And my goodness, that takes quite some time! I have to cut 16 squares and 120 triangles. I'm halfway now, so I can't show any results.
Also busy stitching for a 'Christmas in July' exchange, and there is Mary Wigham. But she has to wait until next time ....
