Last month I spent a few days working with Berene and other members of our community on a very special project that you can read about here. I took Agatha, my Featherweight, along because it's so portable and just can't be beat for straight piecing. Berene took this photo of me (below), which I love.
I guess that gave her the inspiration for my tea towel. She's been doing quite a bit of hand-printing lately, having participated in a great flickr swap. The Featherweight was printed using a hand-cut freezer paper stencil and the towel hem was lovingly embellished with running stitches. I'm really in awe of Berene's design talent. The apple has certainly fallen close to the tree at her house - check out this awesome video tutorial that her son made for an easy printing technique onto t-shirts!
I'm Happy and Sew Lucky to have many creative and generous friends in my life.
I think I'll go wash some dishes.
