I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

The Boutique is Here!!

Hey Blog Buddies,
I just wanted to give you all a heads up about the Boutique that's going on today and tomorrow.  My quilt guild does this on the first Friday and Saturday of November every year, and it is really fabulous.

The members of our Guild make tons of stuff
for this boutique.
(Last year there were over 20,000 items!)
There are also several selected outside vendors.
The location is the Community Center
of the Flossmoor Community Church,
Carroll Pkwy. and Hutchinson Rd., Flossmoor, IL.
If you live within 50 miles of Flossmoor,
it's well worth a trip.
(Don't forget your checkbook!)

The website for the Guild is here.
Click on the Boutique 2010 link in the header
to get a sampling of what last year's Boutique was like.
Be patient, it takes a little while
for all of the photos to load.

My pathetically small contribution is below.

Two scarves, one knit and one crocheted.

A funky, little patchwork heart ornament.
I am not good at sewing curved seams.
Everyone was asked to make one.
There will be lots there that are nicer.

Finally, I whipped up a bunch of
little covers for travel tissue packs.
(I haven't had that much sewing experience, folks!)

But, don't worry, there are many sewing wizards in our Guild.
Some of the hand-made items for sale are:
holiday ornaments, table toppers, quilts,
knitted and crocheted items,
jewelry, dolls, purses,
the list goes on and on.

Hope to see you there tomorrow.
Have a great weekend,
and thanks for stopping by.
