Peg, your quilt depiction of Bridal Falls is wonderful.  You have captured the area very well.  We drive past Bridal Falls every time we go to Abbotsford and it is a lovely place to see.

Agnes, what a wonderful idea; yours are beautiful.

I think I probably have as many ufo's in knitting or cross stitch or embroidery as I have in quilting.  Unfortunately my production has slowed down a lot since this RA has hit me.

thank you for the 0as birthday wishes lol. enjoying the projects.

Thank you for the comments on my little creation. Just over three months ago I broke my wrist and needed surgery. Overall I'm doing pretty good. It gave me time to analyse my goals. Quilting is largely riding off into the sunset.

I decided it was time to get back to stitching. I have a major embroidery bluework I am poking away at. I thought I was ordering a needlepoint kit but turns out it is cross stitch with regular 4 ply yarn. I am enjoying it immensely and the next project of this type will be needlepoint. I haven't done any since the 1980s and it is time to get back to it.

Phyllis--I admire that you are doing petite point.

Your picture is beautiful Peg congrats on the work I like to try and do scenes but right now have to many others to finish I love the tea cozy what a great idea for a church sale Thanks    Take care all

Peg, I stand in awe of your creation.  I love to do renderings of photos I have either seen or places I have been and I know how detailed it can get. I am SO impressed by yours.  Gives me a push to start on two that I have waiting in the wings.  One still only an idea, and a petite point that I started a couple of years ago and has been patiently waiting for me to become inspired again.

Agnes, a great idea to turn that little mat into a tea cozy.  You have a creative mind!!

Thank you, Shannon.  You still have a lot of catching up to do if you want to be as old as I am. LOL

Lovely, Agnes.  I like to make little useful quilted items  - they are such fun!

Comment by Peg, Agassiz, BC on March 4, 2017 at 8:16am

Agnes - what a great idea, so pretty and a wonderful way to use those mats.  They're perfect!

Comment by Agnes / NW Ontario on March 4, 2017 at 8:12am

Peg--That Bridal Falls rendering is wonderful. It is a lot of work that is also so rewarding. 

My latest finish is puny in comparison. Some years ago I had made two identical little mats. This week I turned one quickly into the perfect tea cozy for my most used small tea pot.

Hi Peg,

I am so inspired from your wallhanging of Bridal Falls.  It is incredibly beautiful and so well done!  My daughter lives beside Wells Gray Park and is walking distance of the Helmcken Waterfall.  I've seen so many photos of it with all my relatives in front of it.  I doubt if I'll ever see it because Hubby and I don't travel.  But a quilt picture would be so nice.
