two new panels
Translating the painted designs into full sized 90 inch cloth pieces is a little daunting but a start was made yesterday at the regular Thursday sewing circle. Three different women over the course of the day worked on the blue dotted eyelet stitches pictured left. I've received several donations of lace. How can I use it in a contemporary manner? How can I honour it? A long strip of foundation-pieced table cloth linen is the beginning of yet another panel. There are four panels in the Manitoulin circle project and one is completed, ready to be hand quilted. I'll blog about it tomorrow.
