I started to work on this Irish linen tablecloth and matching napkins in January
I also made heart pockets for the upcoming Valentines day
I made spring chick napkins to match
a little salt and pepper set in my shop,
and I crocheted a dish cloth and designed and hand embroidered a dish towel to match a
a very vintage cup in my shop that I turned into a scouring pad holder.
I spent a few weeks in March making two sets of dish towels using a very vintage embroidery transfer,
and as most of you know.......I LOVE the insect world and get much of my inspiration
from their color and their whimsy-ness
and capturing it in embroidery in April
In May, I re purposed vintage pillow cases into wonderful his and hers hand towels,
In June I hand embellished a bath towel with this embroidery
to match this vintage wall hanging set in my shop
In July, the publisher of Crazy Quilt Quarterly Magazine, Pam Kellogg, contacted me, to publish my miniature crazy quilt in her fall issue!
In August, I finally finished two sets of flower of the month coasters.
One for myself..........one to sell
In September I hurriedly designed, embroidered and quilted a baby quilt for my new great niece,
In October, I focused on more designing of roses to match some of my vintage dishes
In November I embroidered a hankie for a new grandmother
and now it's the end of the year and I am just almost through with the tablecloth and napkin set......
so Janice, in San Francisco......... it is almost ready to fly home to you!
Here's the best wishes for the best stitches to all of you in 2016!
