Stitching Quakers

I’ve lead a Quaker exchange, and we are currently on our 15th exchange! So many lovely Quaker smalls have been stitched through this exchange, and it has been such a great exchange to be a part of.

QQX15 Quaker bag for Linda

My partner was Linda, and I stitched and finished this drawstring bag for her. I fell in love with Vikki Clayton’s Baneberry, and went in search of a design that I felt would work really well with what I was seeing in my mind! I used VC’s scarlet for the flowers, and I’m really happy with how this turned out

My newest ornament finish 2007, originally uploaded by nkuelbs.

I had stitched this ornament for an ornament RR I lead last year, but decided on a different design once it came time to send. All this ornament lacked was cording to be attached, taking a short part of an afternoon to complete. It was great to be able to add this to my growing collection of stitched ornaments.

2008 Blogging hopes and plans

I’ve never been one to keep a journal or daily accounting of my life – I’ve always admired those who do and wished I held the devotion I’ve seen in others. This trait has spilled over into my blogging. I started blogging when I joined an exchange group whose membership required each stitcher to maintain a blog, and have been quite the spotty writer since then. One of the challenges that I’ve encountered is the ability to easily post pictures – this talent has eluded me at all turns. I love blogs with pictures, so my lack of them has kept me away. I don’t know what 2008 will bring, but if wishes were horses (as they say) I should have thousands of words and pictures to populate my blog LOL!

I’ll keep on trying . . .
