I read the instructions on Tif's blog and I thought I could do that!
I ferreted about in the storeroom.
And chose from the baskets of this and that.
Then I spent a couple of happy hours in the shade stitching away
It was so much fun and so easy.
And to be sure, mine did not look one whit like Tif's,
but that's not the point is it???
I put all my prettiest doilies in and bits I'd saved for something special
lots of found bits and pieces. Such fun :)
There's nothing like a bit of peaceful stitching on a Sunday afternoon is there??
And then it was a table runner, how cool.
I put hope on it because if there is one thing we need in Christchurch
it's hope, that and a shake-free new year!!!
One of my hand dyed doilies and someone's beautiful stitching.
I wonder who they were and what they were making them for.
And then it went home with my friend Pip to sit on her piano and make her smile
when she walks past it every day.
I think I'll make another one!!
I'm on tender hooks to see what Tif comes up with next.
