SPRING SEWING PARTY

Saturday is the Spring Sewing Party hosted by The Charming Guys & Girls Quilt Club. We will be sewing on a spring project. I have chosen to do a wool table mat which will be sewn to a homespun rectangle. I spent this evening prepping the project so that I can jump in and do the hand stitching on Saturday. I have chosen a pattern by Buttermilk Basin. I have had the pattern for almost two years. I saw the wool mat on a blog in the header around Easter time and decided I had to make one for myself. The chicks are cute! Makes me think of the real baby chicks my childhood girlfriend got one Easter. They were dyed pastel colors. Only one lived and grew to be a rooster. The family donated the rooster to the children's zoo when they moved from the suburbs into the city. I will be posting my progress on the mat on Saturday.

Stop back!
