wool nine patches
It has been a while since I've talked about the Manitoulin Community Circle Project that continues every Thursday in Little Current. Participants are embroidering 5 inch squares with knots or crosses which are then arranged as nine patches on lightweight flannel foundations. Here they are laid out on the actual size cotton plan. Sometimes, I feel that the project gets ahead of me. I can't keep up to it. These squares from saved wool blankets are for the fourth meditation panel. The painted design with some proposed white work is shown above. Only 117 more marked squares are needed. All welcome.
