my black cardigan
I try and be creative in those tiny moments of free time that happen in between doing all those things that need to be done every day.
You can read more about creative things and sewing things and life things at my blog, My Black Cardigan.
About my square…
Being part of a community quilt got me thinking about being part of the blogging community. I have found so much inspiration, support and friendship since blogging, an unexpected benefit of being a mum. Not that you have to be a mother to blog.... but for me, it was being at home with my children and rediscovering the ‘creative me’ that lead me to blogging.
So I decided to represent my family on my quilt square, to show the three best things in my life and to acknowledge them as the reason I am part of this project. I traced around a photo of the four of us and used this outline as the design for my square. It is hand sewn using stem stitch with just a tiny bit of satin stitch. There is more info on how it all happened here.
