and this is my first prototype box but entirety stitched - no glue which I definitely prefer……….
The appliqué includes very small versions of some of the blocks from the quilt and I really enjoyed making it. Then I thought I should try to make another using the glued method from the hexagon box class years ago………(would look good beside the quilt in the Kings Chamber Nydia!)
So those of you doing the May Morris class in the coming months you will receive the instructions and patterns to make these boxes…….and I might even make some more! So life in the Hill house is good and I've even been smelling the roses which are blooming in the sunshine today…..
I've also been trying some new recipes so a visit to our amazing Adelaide Central Market was in order. The smells and bustle are always fun so with fresh herbs and even some kale in hand I cooked my first Thai Laksa and according to Larry it was sensational……..
I've also been doing some reading…. Linda Lear's biography of Beatrix is captivating and timely in preparation of our UK Tour in September. Over Easter I received another beautiful book as a gift from my lovely friend Kay (thanks Kay x). That too is a lovely book written by Marta McDowell a professional gardener whose interests include the gardens of significant historic people……..
So all is well as I hope it is with you x
