The jog was my daily break from the sewdio, where today I finished those two miniatures that I'd prepped on Friday.
First, "Can You Hear Me Now?"
|"Can You Hear Me Now?"|
I was going to do this as a 12" square for the SAQA Benefit Auction this year, but somehow, it called to be made in a smaller size, so there you are. I'm relieved that I actually got to use one of my white mats! (I have a second one, but it has a blemish on the front, so it will be used in the sewdio for sizing pieces instead.)
And a second version of "Prairie Autumn" (dubbed "PA II", to replace the one that sold):
Slightly different fabrics give a slightly different 'look', but I think it still captures the essence of the piece -- and the original photo.
Yesterday, as I reported earlier, I did some more piecing on P's quilt. Here's where I've left off till Saturday (this is a weekend project for now):
Have you noticed how similar the colours are to those in the background of my blog? Hmmmm....
And my friend C and I finally got together today to celebrate her birthday, which was actually over a week ago. Now that she has her gift I can share the finished photo with you:
This design is Thea Dueck's "'P' is for Princess", from her alphabet series, and is, in truth, quite tiny -- no more than 5" wide and a bit over 12" long (with borders). I wasn't brave enough to do the cut-work hem stitch all the way 'round, so C had to settle for it at top and bottom only! Still, I think it turned out well and she certainly likes it.
On the knitting front, yesterday I finished the armhole shaping on the front of the sleeveless turtleneck top; on now to the neck shaping!
And so it goes...
Oh yes, packaging has been ordered for my show pieces, and has been shipped...
Just think! Less than a month and the show will be over and I'll be having a ball at the SAQA Conference at The Lodge at Santa Fe. Wow! Roll on April!
