Yesterday, I spent the whole afternoon stitching Thistlewood. It's really a pleasure to stitch. And in the evening, I wanted to do something else and tried to find a quick and fun project to make.
Maggie Bonanomi has been my inspiration once again. I found in her book With These Hands the project that would be perfect for what I had in mind. It just needed to be adapted a bit to size so it could fit in.
I picked up a Japanese fabric for the background and took all the wools I had and then the fun part started.
This is what I came up with a few hours later.
It is going to be perfect for this very practical but not very nice craft case.
Once appliqué, the blue will not show anymore and I will have a country sewing case. So fun!
Do you like it ?
And the very good news is that Maggie will be in Nantes at the quilt show Pour l'Amour Du Fil organized by Quiltmania.
And Reiko Kato will be there too!!! Well, I think that Quiltmania is my personal Santa Claus as they make my dreams come true.
Today is going to be another stitching day with Thistlewood and Best Friends.
Happy Halloween everyone... Where I live in France it is not celebrated but my daughter has invited 3 friends to have fun with her... the costumes are ready... Let's hope the neighbors are ready too!!
