Quaker Needlework Treasures by Chi

Chi, from Japan, recently sent me photos of her lovely work. What a thrill it was to hear from her! Chi did a beautiful job with her stitching, her finishing, and even her photography. I think you’ll agree.

The first two photos are of Chi's Quaker Needlework Treasures. She used Deep Sea overdyed thread from Weeks Dye Works and 28-count Summer Khaki linen from Zweigart.

Next is Chi's Remember Me Sewing Pocket--another lovely job! On this project she used Deep Sea overdyed thread from Weeks Dye Works and 32-count Lambswool linen from Wichelt.Here is yet another project from the talented Chi--her Quaker Pattern Book. The three photos below show you her book folded and then opened to reveal both sides. Chi used Cupid thread from Crescent Colours and 28-count Antique Ivory linen from Zweigart.
And last, but not least, is Chi's Quaker Hornbook. For this project, she used Garnet thread from Hand Dyed Fibers and 32-count Maple Sugar linen from Lakeside Linens, Inc. You may recall seeing Chi's wonderful Petit Carnet d'Ouvrages, Livre I and II on May 26, 2009.

Thank you, Chi, for sharing photos of your beautiful work!

Isn't it wonderful how, thanks to the internet, our world has definitely become smaller? We are easily able to share our love of needlework with others all over the world.

There will be more Quaker Hornbook photos in the next week or so.
