She volunteered to teach a stitch at The Lost Pines Crazy Quilt Group. By the way she does excellent bullion knots! So as a teacher gift I gave her a pin keeper!
She was so excited! I hope that she will enjoy it for a long time!

And here they are:
They all went into a silent auction. All of course sold. I was happy that they did. I am hopeing that their new owners will be very happy with them. As y'all can see, I had been playing a little with the rainbow gallery products that I had collect at that one dollar sale. I am very happy with the way that they turned out. I think that the "highlighting" with the golds on the SRE turned out really well.

She had stated in the email that she was not able to participate in the CQI pin keeper swap but she wanted me to see the pin keeper that she did. As I said it was wonderful, just beautiful!
So in returning her email I told her that I would be proud to swap with her. So here it is. The pin keeper that I made for her:
I had taken my time with this one as I had wanted to play with the design a little bit. I printed up the silkie from a trading card that I had recently found in the clutter of my desk. All of the stitching was done in silk ribbon, the high lights are from my recent going broke marathon in my favorite store. I am hoping that my new friend likes what I have done with the pin keeper.
This pin keep will be off to Finland tomorrow.
After giving it to her she told me that she loved the sea. That her home is full of ocean and sea things. I have since lost touch with her. I am not sad because one day I know that I will see her again.
God gives us friends. No matter if they are here for a life time or for just a little while, we need to cherish that friendship. They are the people who help shape our lives. They help us become who we need to be.
