A piece of my sampler

Ritva and Miriam had the same theme for the fabric book page swap at Fibre Fever. Their theme was traditional craft, which made me think about the samplers little girls had to stitch. I visited an exhibition with lots of these old samplers back in the 80’s. The book with samplers I bought then and the borders for Randje per week were the inspiration for these samplers. The scissor came from a sampler dated 1734, the butterfly was on a sampler dated 1873.

Birthday cards for Helinä and Miriam

There were 2 birthday girls in the Fibre Fever group last week. I made a foundation pieced cupcake for Helinä . . .
. . .and a felt postcard with lots of French knots for Miriam.
 This was a design in my studio journal, dated March 6, 2011.

Owl from Miriam

Last week I received this pretty owl page. It’s made for me by Miriam for the fabric book page swap at Fibre Fever.
It was accompanied by this cute caterpillar fabric card.

Randje 13-41

There was not much time to blog last month, so I have to play catch up starting with Randje per week. My last post about these borders was in February! In the meantime I finished 2 pages and started page 9. This is page 7 . . .
. . .and page 8. I skipped randje 21 and 22 and stitched some borders in a different order to make it fit.
The first borders on page 9: randje 35, 37 and 39-41.
I’m skipping randje 42 too, so now all I have to stitch are the pretty randjes for this week.
