Three sweet girls


With all that sewing on the baby quilt, I completely forgot to show you what I bought from Cathy some weeks ago.

Another brilliant embroidery pattern from her hand - and this time with a very special purpose too.
The pattern is a drawing of Cathy's three beautiful girls Cate, Lily and Eme. The picture was made for the girls' birthday invitations.

When I'm going to make this embroidery, I know that I will have to make the girls look as true to life as possible. I don't know why I feel this way...it's just the way it is.

But since the baby blanket isn't all done yet, I push myself to that one piece of needlework. Starting other projects would only make me forget all about the blanket.
I can't tell you how much I hate it at the moment! A whole lot of the special quilting knots I have tied, somehow tend to untie themselves...so I'm doing them all over.

  3. Ja, er de ikke søde de små piger - jeg kan sagtens se Cathys piger i hendes geniale tegning. :)) Og så broderede hun hver især på hjemmesyede fødselsdagskjoler til pigerne. Så fint...

    Jeg siger dig at de knuder var ved at drive mig til vanvid! Det havde taget så lang tid og Christian havde endda vist mig helt præcis hvordan forklaringen skulle føres ud i praksis. ;)) Nå, men nu er de lavet om og er ekstra sikre.

    Det var så lidt med Tobias. Emil og mig nød at snakke og kæle med jeres kanin. Og ih hvor var chokoladen god. :))

    I think this embroidery pattern is so fine - and very heartwarming. I definitely see your beautiful little girls. They must have loved getting dresses with themselves embroidered on the front. :))

    Every time that I think that you have outdone yourself in fabulous design/work, then you blow me of my feet with new gorgeous stuff.

    So dear Cathy, you most certainly make my heart happy too. :))

    Tusind tak, Rikke :)) Jeg er vild med Cathy Gauberts arbejde - hun har en helt vidunderlig tankegang og formår at skabe de skønneste ting. :))

    Og nu har jeg set det vidunderlige venindearmbånd i Theresa Jessings nye bog (som forøvrigt er formidabel!). Jeg kan godt forstå at hun takker dig. :))
