P is for Paris

Stitching continues on the Paris needlepoint travel round.  Since I last posted, the background is completely stitched.  I'm able to start on the letters which is going quickly as I already completed the 'P' before I was able to post in time for Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching. Lol!  Looking forward to working with the bling fibers hopefully without my furry supervisor.

Although I have not posted for a few weeks, I've done some fun quilt-related activities.  Three weeks ago, I attended an excellent quilt & fiber show held in Port Huron, Michigan.  It was a pleasure to see lots of exquisite handwork. The ribbons themselves were a work of art.

This was a crazy quilt embroidered by hand representing each month of the calendar. Made by Carolyn Knaggs
 These hand stitched and hand quilted hexies (all 6,798) were stitched by Cheryl Baker and quilted by Lovina Miller. Did I mention the hexies measure 3/4".  Oh my!

Last weekend I was at a quilt retreat in Sebewaing, Michigan which is in the Thumb of the state's mitten. 😊
The hostesses hang up quilts for ambiance.  This was one of my favorites as it was made of antique scraps and created an almost modern design.

My retreat project was machine applique from a Nancy Rink design kit. This is the block laid out, not yet appliqued.

Please remember to check out Kathy's Slow Stitching linky party. Thank you for visiting.
