craft guild show and tell June 2014

This is a photo from my craft guild potluck show and tell. Samples of my zentangle, a fabric bowl. cross-stitch cardinal for a chair pad done for my Mom. and a friendship centre piece. Centre piece was a gift to me. I did the same embroidered middle and made a table runner for the exchange. The one in the photo was made for me in the exchange. The cross-stitch was done using a wet and pull away canvas. Hard to believe that it is June 27 already. Where does the time go. Even when I am not going out to a job the days are passing very quickly. I had some time in my sewing room earlier this morning. Happy quilting. :)Carol

raffle quilt

This is a picture of the top which was made by Dalemead Quilting Guild. My guild. We are having a quilt show in Oct. and this is the raffle quilt that we are selling tickets on for the show. A wonderful quilt. Especially close up. The guild needs to replace funds for the amount of charity quilts made last year that were donated to the High River/Calgary flood victims. Happy quilting....:)Carol

This is a shopping bag that I made from on old..very old scrub top. Even has the pockets on the outside. I gave this one to a coworker who liked dragonflies. Today is grey and wet looking. Think I will spend time in my sewing room today. Happy quilting :)Carol

flood victims charity tops I made

Two tops I made for flood victim last summer.

mini quilt and charity top in progress

Hard to believe that the last time I posted to this blog was Feb. We were away for almost 2 months but I didn't realize it had been so long. Anyway. Here are 3 pictures. The front and back of a mini quilt I made as part of a challenge with my guild for our quilt show in Oct. 2014. The middle photo is a charity quilt I have in progress. I now have 2 rows sewn together and 3 more seams of the other 3 rows left to sew. So it is coming along. I will try to blog more often in future. Happy quilting to all. :)Carol
