As allways we had a wonderful day. The most of us haven't seen each other for half a year. Far too long.
We always make something for each other. It started in 2004 with a friendship sampler. This is mine. I started with the antique cupboard in the center. After the first motive you had to pass it to the next one, together with floss in the colours you prefered. Two years later we had all stitched a motive and the sampler returned to the owner. You could choose your own subject. I chose for classic sampler motives. I still like it very much! Then we successively made for each other a pin cushion, mini sampler, an album amicorum, mail art and now the bookmarks. Our next project will be a needle map.
We zijn momenteel bezig met een boekenlegger. Vandaag hebben we nummer drie uitgewisseld. Het leuke is dat ze allemaal heel verschillend zijn. We hebben geen thema, ieder mag doen wat zij wil.
Dit is de boekenlegger die ik voor Miep heb gemaakt.
We now are making a bookmark for each other. This afternoon I received bookmark number 3 and they all are different. We have no subject, so we can stitch whatever we like. This is the bookmark that I have made for Miep.
