my mum left us a most lovely gift when she tootled back up north (for warmer and drier climes!), this gorgeous sofa cover/woolly blanket. I think it's meant to share but it wraps around me just right in this wintry summer weather so I'm not sharing very much. I'll share it when the sun comes back out!
and my lovely man brought some loot back from the golowan stalls last week (anyone would think it was my birthday!). This was the very best of the loot, a luscious quilt book that has me thinking of making rustic quilts to keep us all warm.
I love all the reds and linens and the feeling that all these fabrics were probably worn long before they were made into quilts
my favourites are the lovely wonky dolls' quilts with uneven squares. I wonder if this makes uneven quilting acceptable, in which case I will have much success with my quilting!
I am also thinking that a bit of tuition in the art of stitchery embellishment might come in handy for such a project and have noticed that the unbelievably talented Northern lass Karen Ruane is running another class that I would very much like to have time for.... If you love stitching you would love love love her gorgeous blog
and finally I have turned this piece of embroidery into a kindle case. It fits a kindle wifi because I am very cheap and that is the one we bought!
but I think she makes a good 'protector of the kindle' and may even make a few more. This one is in my etsy shop
I hope your days are a little sunnier than ours right now or that you have a lovely warm blanket that you refuse to share with anyone!
