CQI Donation

OK I've participated in the past with a few postcard donations to help build up our CQI (crazy patch embellishment group) Retreat Scholarship online auction, that one didn't do so well.  This time I'm hoping my contribution starts a bidding frenzy within the group! 

See I tatted up a variety of items from small/medium sized motifs to a couple of edgings (one with beads) and included some of my crocheted hearts/pansy/flower and finished off with purchased Venice fancy lace motifs and trims.  These I very patiently stitched in place on an 8" x 10" piece of quilt batting for a tempting array - at least I hope!  Now to watch the results!

This is for the retreat scholarship, too? Lovely pieces, Rose Anne.

So nice to have a sister to sew with. My sister and I occasionally have a sewing weekend together, just the two of us. It's lovely and it's a great way to remember our Mum who taught us to sew in the first place.
Love blog Rose Anne.
