A while ago, I told you that in May or June I would be ready to share with you a project I started in November.
Well, here it is :
This project is The Basket, a creation of Nathalie Méance, also know as La Fée Pirouette. It is published in her new book. (click on the picture of the book to flip through the projects in it)
I started this project during one of the most wonderful weekend on the ocean coast, with the most wonderful people.
Gathering with like-minded people, sharing the same passion, learning new techniques, breaks the routine of stitching and quilting alone at home.
It was so great that another weekend retreat was organized two weeks ago with Cécile Franconie from Facile Cécile. You can have a glimpse of it here ;-)
So....what's left to be done on the basket ? Not much as far as the embroidery is concerned. Just a few beads to add. Then I will start piecing the top this afternoon which shouldn't be too long. But the yoyos will take some time.... well, I'd better go and work on the quilt now, as I told La Blonde that I will have finished it before going on vacation this summer.
Mrs Jeux De Fils is the first in the group to have finished the project... a while ago... and OMG!!! this is beautiful!
PS : You may have noticed that I activated the code for comments again. I do know this is annoying, but I had so many spams to delete each day that I turned it on again. Sorry about the inconvenience.
Edit : No more codes to avoid the "don't-want-to-spend-too-much-time-trying-to-figure-out-what-this-damn-code-is"!!! but have not allowed anonymous comments instead. Hope this is going to be the best solution, both for you and me ;-)
Heading to Hobart....
