A bit sad!

Today I'm feeling a bit despondent. The reason is that once again I'm loosing a good friend, meaning she is leaving Singapore to return home after being here for 14 years. We first met at a quilt group meeting many years ago and have become close.  I will miss her greatly as well as our weekly get-togethers when we quilted and crafted. Of course I couldn't let her leave without making her a little something.



It's part of a new pattern set for four cushion covers called "From the Heart" by Kellie from Don't look Now but I've made it into a little wall hanging instead.








                               

As most of Kellie's patterns it's done by raw edge applique and it came together quite fast.






On Friday  I had another tea box workshop and both ladies managed to finish a box each. Didn't they turn out lovely?
That's all for now. I hope to be back soon.

That's a "little something"? Your friend will be so excited...it is gorgeous! I'm sure she will miss you too.

I love the boxes you and your friends make. They look so difficult and are very beautiful.

Wow, what a wonderful gift Vreni! Hopefully, with the internet and your blog you'll be able to keep in touch with your friend! Those boxes are so pretty -- I sure wish you were here so we could make boxes!

Next time you're in Switzerland I think you should do a tea box workshop - I'd love to learn how to make one!! They're lovely!

That is sad for you Vreni to be having your friend move away but you have made her a beautiful gift which I am sure she will treasure. How lucky we are to be living in an age where we have internet and can keep in touch with the click of a button, not the same as having her near I know. Lovely boxes your ladies have made.

Der Wandbehang ist ganz wunderschön und Deine Freundin wird ihn sicher ihn Ehren halten! Und die Kisten sind ebenfalls wunderschön geworden!!
Eine ganz gute Woche wünscht Dir, Rita

Love, love, love your mini quilt. You even changed the colours of your thread for all the motifs when you quilted. Your friend is very lucky to have found you and with internet she won't be too far away.

Sue said...

Truly lovely. A gift to be treasured always.

Janet said...

You are going to miss your friend but you may meet up again one day. The quilt you made her is really gorgeous and a real treasure. The boxes are wonderful, love them both.
