Make a Boob at Rogaland Quiltelag, Part 2

After doing a few workshops I’m getting better at setting up my Make a Boob stash;

knowing what goes where does help.

The content of the ribbon basket was a bit tangled

and the bead boxes a bit of a mess when I set up

and even worse when I packed everything up.

This was my second workshop at my guild, Rogaland Quiltelag. We were not that many at the meeting

but all these lovely boobs got decorated for the project.

Thanks for having me. Again!

Boob Mail; The ladies at Quilte Huset/Vestlandsdrakten

I received a call a while back from a group that meets at Quilte Huset/ Vestlandsdrakten in Bergen, asking if they could make boobs for this project, and of course I said Yes, please do.

Last week they arrived; 60 glorious boobs from Bergen:
Appliquéd ones,
pieced ones
and plain ones (not so plain are they!)
Thank you so much to all you ladies who have made these boobs; they are beautiful!

Workshop at Craftretreat

Yesterday’s all day workshop was fun with lots of lovely ladies of all ages. Doll house, embroidery and teddy bear people from all over the country gather here once a year and take classes, watch exhibitions and shop.

We set up our tables in the morning.
Almost ready to go

with my impromptu sign perfectly imperfect on the wall
and a rainbow of colours on the table.

My stand had lots of visitors all day, and people took their time to sit down, talk and sew.

Half an hour goes by quickly when you’re doing handwork so I was very pleased with the turnout on a day like this.
Thank you to each and everyone who participated!

Bling Drive, textart

I came home from last week’s guild meeting with 1m each of all these glorious ribbons from textart which was the shop of the day at our meeting. I tried very hard not to get greedy when the owner generously said I could pick as many ribbons as I’d like to, but as you see, I didn’t succeed very well.

Thank you so much; these will look wonderful on boobs!

Boob Mail, Liz

Liz from UK sent 8 gorgeous boobs, each one dedicated to one of her loved ones who have had breast cancer including a male relative.It’s a little known fact that men get breast cancer too; my father did several years ago which is one of the reasons why I decided to do this project in the first place.

Thank you so much for your little works of art, Liz, they are beautiful!

Boob Mail, Caroline

Caroline from UK sent these finished boobs this summer:
Nine patched
and pin wheeled
and crazy and embroidered ones.

Thank you so much for your contribution, they are wonderful!

Boob Mail, Magnhild

Magnhild sent all these beautiful boobs weeks ago, and again I am so sorry for being so late posting them!

Cheerful scrappy ones
Funky quilted ones (love the ones with the Nazca-ish lines!)
And lovely plain ones
Thank you so much, Magnhild, your boobs are added to the collection and will be put to good use!

Boobs, May Guild meeting

My friend, Inger Marie, brought a couple of boobs to Make a Boob Day at our guild, Rogaland Quiltelag. I insisted I would take pictures and post them before they got decorated, and here they are.
Kari brought a bag filled with beautiful ribbons. Some of them might be used for hanging boobs; I’m still thinking of additional ways of displaying boobs besides appliquéing them onto quilts.
I also found this beautiful flower in the bag.
Thank you, Inger Marie and Kari, for your boobs and bling and support; all good!
