My April goals included finishing these two projects. First is Mirabilia's "Fairy Moon," shown with the companion piece "Stargazer," which was completed a couple of years ago. I love how this turned out and now I need to get both framed!
Secondly, Drawn Thread's "Summer Garden" finished as a pillow for my guest room:
Whilst on holiday in Ireland, I completed a project of Victoria Sampler's "International Hearts" representing the countries where we have lived (note that I did Scotland, Wales and England to represent Great Britain):
One of my favourite stitching things is to participate in Round Robins, stitching on others' pieces whilst they stitch on mine. My latest RR theme was Coca-Cola Polar bears. I stitched the upper left hand hockey player.
In return, I stitched the lower left part of the heart and the medallion for my friends. Unfortunately the fourth participant's piece went missing in the post.
I finished a block on an old round robin that was international neighbourhood. This is representing The Netherlands.
As I mentioned, I lost a dear friend to cancer in April. She was one of my stitching friends, and several of us stitched blocks to be made into a quilt for her family. She and I had considered stitching a piece called "Noah's Submarine" together. I stitched a part of that pattern for the quilt.
Finally, here is my current project, Carriage House Sampling's "A Mind Independent and Free." I've finished approximate 25% of it.
Thanks for looking!
