Becky's Kite'

February 23, 2010

Hello All I got a lovely surprise when my husband returned home from his fishing trip this year, as I told you all that I had made the Lazy Dazy Bag for Becky in my previous post.

I was lucky enough to recieve one in return, a very special Kite' ( this is woven from our native flax, it is a Moari custom. ) It is beautiful, I have always wanted one of these and feel very privileged to recieve it. Here is a picture of the Kite'.

It is so lovely to be able to share this with you all. Happy Stitching Everyone Sharon

Last week we had a scheduled power cut for our area, meaning I could not do any quilting on the Roses quilt. This was the perfect time to pull my fabrics out and sort through them, folding them nicely and organizing them into colour baskets. I have been meaning to resort them for a while now. This was a great way to get reacquainted with my fabrics, finding all those precious fabrics that just make my heart race. Giving me ideas for my next project, another journey! Benny decided that would be fun and he loves to help, I think he secretly wants to be a quilter too.
