The people who have followed me for a long time will remember this quilt (and Lady). I started making it while watching over Lady in her last few months with us, I could do the hand stitching whilst sitting with her. When she died I sort of fell out with it, but this year I finally got around to completing it, and I really like it. It has pride of place on our wall and, if you look closely, you may even see Lady ..............
The pattern is called Village Houses by Rosalie Quinlan
Well.... I cannot believe I haven't written anything on my blog since September, but it appears to be true.
I am still around, still sewing, though I do seem to be having problems finishing things (opps). I attended a workshop for candlewick embroidery. It's usually done with muslin or calico using the same colour thread. I made a cushion cover out of mine.
Difficult to get a picture with it being cream on cream!
I like the technique so decided to try something slightly different and used a red background with the cream cotton.
I think I like this better, you can see the pattern and it looks like lace.
Because I know you like to see pictures of Sam ..... I will finish with a picture of how he helps us with the shopping, here he is with his head through the handle putting the bag away for me!!
I am 60 "something" born in the UK but now living in France. I have been married for 42 years, we have no children unless you count my dog! I only started quilting in 2010 so am a late starter, but I am learning and I am loving every minute of it, well apart from the ripping out!
