All the girls har brought their quilting and we had a great evening together. We started this group in 1988 when some of us took a class in handstitching. Some new girls have joines us and some have left the group. My mother was one of the girls in this group and I felt a bit sad yesterday she not being able to join us. Love you mom!
We are a small quilting group that calls us "The spools" (in Norwegian; Trådsnellene) and we have made a little pin as sign of the group. It is very small 1,5 x 1,5 inches. As you can se the little hexagons is very very tiny. And under we had to have a spool hanging.
I made some other pins some years ago. Want to show you two of them. If you want to make similar pins you can find the pattern here. It is very easy doing and you can give your pin a personal attitude making funny faces. A lot of my friends have received one of these as a little gift from me.
And I received my books from amazon yesterday. Jippiiiiii. Love the Simple traditions book. It was soooooo many beautiful quilts in it. And the Treasure of crazy quilt stitches....... so many ideas. Do not have the tools that follows the book, but I figured out I could use the plastic I make templates of when I am handstitching. Think that could work helping to get the same shape of bowes aso.
