December Textiles

Show

Gilly, Graziella and Abigail went to the special show of December Textiles at the Hitty’s Art Gallery…

Scrappy Trees

…Graziella loved the quilted Scrappy Christmas trees – The left one made by us for December 21st of the Crafty Advent Calendar, and the right one made by our friend Onesmallstitch up the hill!!

Weaving and Cross stitch

Abigail was enchanted by the Woven Trees – made by a woman in the 1990’s.  One winter when I worked at the Royal BC Museum, the Victoria Handweavers and Spinners Guild set up and demonstrated their crafts – I was lucky enough to get this little scrap, and have saved it ever since! The cross-stitched Julbock (Swedish Christmas Goat) was on a card given to me by a friend a couple of years ago.

Cross-stitch and quilting

Gilly thought the little quilt showing a robin was the cutest thing ever – made by Joan Wotherspoon, we bought it at the 2022 Victoria Quilter’s Guild Christmas show and Sale…

Trees and cat!

…and she likes the cross-stitched Christmas vignette (made by the Quimper Hitty human).

Sweet delight

The Art Gallery served a special Holiday drink – the Cardamom syrup makes every cup of tea taste like hot and delicious chai! (December 22 of our Crafty Advent Calendar).

Stocking!

Gilly liked going to the Art Gallery with her big sisters, and even had a sip of sweet Cardamom tea…but her favourite December textile is a knitted one!!!

Thank you crafty friends for the lovely gifts!!

  1. Hello Gilly
    We hope your favourite textile is soon plumped up with wonderful gifts.
    What a great treat to go to such a grown up event as a textile show. We specially like the rug on the floor at the show and the one beside your bed, too.
    Merry Christmas!
    From Mary and Roberta N-Q-H
