I have joined in on the Four Season Quilt Swap - Summer. Margaret was kind enought to send out a reminder to those who had participated in the previous swap. It has been a busy week, so I had missed out on the invitation. It seems quilte popular and I think there will be more than 100 participants!
I saw these cute little stitcheries over here, and wanted to try. It's a free block of the month. They are so small!!! The dove is 2"square. They were fun to stitch, too.
This week was my birthday. One of the nice presents I recieved was some scraps of silk brocade, leftowers from national costumes my aunt made. Very pretty. Maybe I will use them in the wallhanging I am working on, my Cat quilt, where I use different qualities of fabric together. A little progress made here as well...I have used a mix of linen and cotton. The bee's wings are part of two shirt collars. I am planning to add stitches and embellishment after I have quilted the top. The plan is to fill the wall in the dining room. I keep rearranging the patches as I progress. I'm planning to add some flowers at the bottom and then frame the quilt with a border.
