Once Upon A Season
I just had to showcase the lovely gifts I received from Sheila as my 'Fall' season swap. This wallhanging is just so be-fitting of the New England fall season. The center tiny piecing (those are 1" squares) is a touch to my heart as I love working with bits. The applique is just wonderfully done. I'm a beginner with applique, so this really is special to me to have such a lovely piece.
And this matching needle case - look at that lovely applique again. But there's more...
Look at this on the inside. Lots of little pockets to hold your class work needs. A little acorn pinkeep - she tucked in some needles, threader, and some fall season color floss - I love floss.
And here is the entire outside as it's opened up. I just love this design. I am going to have to embroider my name on it so it doesn't disappear at my next guild class.
Thank you Sheila - my Nova Scotia quilting swap partner
