This little light…
I went to ikea today and survived. Not only that I managed to get. Stand for my up cycled lampshade. You like? It’s going in my office, to cheer me as I work. Ive also done a couple of collages fòr Stasherella. And, most excitingly, a number of my quilts are going into auction here…
I had this vintage cushion cover sitting on my sofa for months held together with safety pins. Well tonight, I sewed it together and added some funky Felt decorated corners. It’s kept its character but is a lot more presentable now!
…has far to go. Here’s a well travelled example for a wet and windy Thursday. Completely wrecked but beautiful anyway. It even has an odd Block included because only God can create perfection. Feel the stories this quilt could tell….
Today I joined our local quilt group. Again. And I met a friend of my mother. Maggie Davies is a quilting celebrity now – look at her beautiful handiwork here and below. My mother and she started quilting together back in the 80’s and I have the quilt they worked on together. There’s something special…
Rip it up?
I’m as torn as this lovely quilt that arrived today. Do I chop it up and turn it into pictures, pillows and the like? The quilting is exquisite, flowers, feathers, tiny tiny cross hatching. How do I do it justice? Like I said, torn. Ideas?
