Thankyou for all your messages about the continuing saga of my lost quilts. Sadly mine are "still lost". For those of you overseas: Castlemaine is a long way from home and my packages would not have ended up anywhere near there........well I think they wouldn't have!! So for now I am getting back to designing and stitching my way through that list! I have also had a chance to potter and plant in out new courtyard garden.
Tam and Sue............the William Morris rose is blooming!
I've planted one of my favourite trees - a silver birch
...and a Gingko tree
And a sneak peek above and below at the grand baby's quilt! The new parents put in their order for 'Vintage Mickey and Minnie'. Now I am not sure about copyright here and I hope I am not in strife for putting this on the blog....but a few of you have asked what I was doing for the baby!! This design is only for personal use and I have to say I think William Morris designs are far easier to draw and applique than these characters! But I do know Emily and Brett are thrilled with the little peek at the work in progress
Now to the best part of my week...........My wonderful husband has found a new skill!! I hate not being able to help more with the cutting of kits for the Bedford mystery quilt project... so who better to take my place? Larry has found a new skill and just in time before he retires in a few months! Yeah - no more cutting for me! Maybe I can train him to quilt all my quilts as well. What a treasure and such a great cause...
Do go and visit the Bedford Mystery quilt blog for more pics and the latest info (and thankyou Larry XX)
