I finished part 5 of my Marquoir Marie~Rose. This part was stitched up rather quickly over the weekend. We are over the half way mark now on this sampler which is in 9 parts.
When I arrived home on Monday from the cottage, there was an envelope waiting for me on the doormat. It was a "just because" present from my mother. Look at the wonderful buttons. I have some ideas to use them already.
She also sent along some pins and the fabric and DMC thread to make her redwork squares for her quilt. She asked me to make her a quilt using redwork between squares of red fabric. The redwork is being done by family members and a few special friends she has asked to participate. Everyone will draw something special to remind her of them. I know what I am doing but have to sit and work on the drawing now. I will be making a square in memory of a few people who are very dear to my mother but no longer with us ~ my father, sister, grandmother and one of my aunts.
