This beautiful lighthouse at Peggy's Cove was stitched by Nan, one of the Thursday stitchers. Nan sits quietly and stitches on Thursdays. She is not at all loud and raucous like the rest of us. Obviously steady and quiet wins the race, or at least gets things finished! I finished this little bib for Marina last week. Marina is the first child of some friends of Dans. She was a little early and weighed in at only 4 pounds but is since up to 4 and a half and should be going home to her anxious parents soon we hope.
I am stitching this colourful piece on a Charles Craft bag for my friend Yvonne. She wants it for her grand daughter's birthday later this month. I had to take the side seams out of the bag for ease of stitching but Betty assures me that she can serge them up again good as new when I finish the stitching. I am good at ripping out seams...not so good at sewing them back together , at least not sewing them back together straight!
The pattern came with the bag and calls for 6 of the flourescent DMC colours. They are like rayon, so are slippery to work with but the fabulous colours make the extra effort worthwhile.
