The 'Heaven' is being created from repurposed vintage handkerchiefs.
Yesterday was the third Thursday in the lengthy project that I am leading at the Little Current United Church. I am enjoying working in the church hall as the wood floors and high ceilings are spacious and have a good vibe. I'm especially enjoying the community of women who are coming together to stitch and am in absolute awe of those that also belong to the UCW. (United Church Women). Every time I have set up my project there is something else happening. (Rummage Sale prep, Luncheon for the Dairy men's association, decorations ready for the Christmas tea/bazaar on Saturday). I made a pattern for the 'sky' part of the hanging I've nicknamed Twig Cross so that I could make good use of the many damask tablecloths that have been donated to the project. This is a slight change from my original design, but I think it will work well. Most of the women who come have been stitching these 4" squares full of "Mantioulin Knots". Each square usually takes about 40 minutes to stitch.
