Hmmm… is there such a thing as healthy envy? Well, this is an expression we use a lot in Spanish to indicate admiration for another person’s accomplishment. And in our Thursday sewing circle we find we use it repeatedly when it comes to our friend Mariangela.
I mean, she is a quilting machine! Every week she shows up with one or two new projects. And I don’t mean just new… I mean finished!!! She modestly says she has a lot of time on her hands and loves to sew. I should say!
So one of this week’s finished projects is a lovely cover for a cushion. Simple, but striking.
And then she made this lovely, lovely needle case. This, too, is from the book Omiyage: Handmade Gifts in the Japanese Tradition.
