hands of love

not so long ago i blogged about a friendship quilt i was putting together

finally it was given to the recipients on christmas day!

to see them with their surprise gift, click on the link below –

hands of love friendship quilt

to see the process of making the quilt –

hands, hearts and rainbow colours

it all began when people close to me were going through a hard time

i asked some stitching friends to make either a hand or a heart square to put into a friendship quilt

we ended up with 24 squares

i’ve stitched them together in groups of 4, and this morning i cut the rest of the sashing and the borders

when we present them with the finished quilt i’ll ask their permission for a photo – stay tuned …

tagged and ready to go

today i finished getting everything ready for the deloraine market on saturday

hatchlings, hearts and birds did not escape

neither did these rustic pincushions

the stitched cloth-covered journals only had a short reprieve

[i finished them late last night]
