In my last post I was trying to decide if I was strong enough to give away my precious scrappy blues quilt. Well it turns out that Sarah and Lynz were right and I am Gollum! I couldn't give it away!
As it turns out, she loves it. Being organic, it's lovely and soft and apparently whales are really in fashion just now! - Who knew?!
Meanwhile the precious quilt is sitting folded up on my treadle sewing machine and I can stroke it every time I walk past :)
I've also been making Bee blocks, enjoying some new crafty books and online classes, and been playing with some very delicious Carnaby Street by Pat Bravo that got sent my way, but I'll tell you about that another time.
Both of your quilts are so beautiful! It's often diffucult to apart them. x TejeReplyDelete

Congrats on handing your first assignment. Time for some reward stitchy time this weekend :-)
So glad to see your post, I woke up this morning thinking about seeing friends at quiltcon and wondering how you were doing with the new schedule! I am glad you are still managing to find time to sew! Your new boy quilt is lovely, and I am glad you are keeping the first one. Now enjoy your relaxation time ; )ReplyDelete
