French Knotted out

At last, I can show you some secret stuff that has been happening in my studio. Debra and no blog Mary turned 50 this year and they needed to have a special gift. So, to work I went and created this for Debra ... ... and this for Mary. We're talking a gazillion of French Knots in these two pieces of wall art.


Here is Mary opening her gift last night. Debra received her gift last month and she posted about it here. Needless to say, both ladies were very happy with their gifts.


We've been getting together on Thursday nights for the last couple of months and usually we do some sewing. Talk about a great motivator our meetings are for us. But last night, after munching on delicious Red Velvet cake (it was a small cake just in case any of you thought we were a herd of ....)



.... all we did was browse through some magazines and chit chatted. I had been doing some shopping lately and had a lot of stuff for 'show and tell' time. Debra showed us a scarf that she is knitting and Mary showed us her problem for making a pair of PJ's for a friend. A few more blocks got pinned together for my Pie in the Sky. It was a lazy evening. Oh well .... next week we will all try to be more productive.



The pinwheel blocks you see on the design wall ..... well that is a story for another day.


It was a great evening and fun was had by all.


Have a great day!

As Mary (no blog) stated when she opened her gift "I am not worthy" numerous times she took the words right outta my mouth. These are incredible pieces that will be cherished forever, I was impatient as they both sat there chatting and the parcel sat infront of me for more than an hour!
I have never felt so fortunate and loved as a friend.
It is really a treasure,

What a wonderful friend you are! Making something beautiful with a particular friend in mind is the most special thing I can think of. Each knot wraps round and round like a tiny hug!
