My Travellers Blanket is progressing Yellow, orange and red seem to be the colours that make it sing. I did have to go and buy me a new thimble - a travellers blanket can cope with just so much blood! (And the person making it has a just so much skin!). The eye of the needle under a fingernail doesn't feel very good!
Here are the first two patches - the second one is now complete! I do love this process.
For someone who said she would never, ever, ever hand quilt another quilt............ am I really doing this and enjoying it? Yes I am. The beauty is that I can't see a Quilt Policeman anywhere and the clock isn't ticking! My time, my design and my choices.
This is the third patch - a piece of a gelatine printed fabric. It really is very interesting how much life a scrap can take on, in isolation!
This morning we had a new washing machine installed in our kitchen (long story - lets just say, it cuts out the stairs!)
Little Miss Her ran out the door as soon as the plumber arrived this morning. She finally can back tonight at dinner time.
I did 3 loads of washing with the little cat looking daggers at the kitchen. After the last load she finally deciced she could get a little closer! She is not too sure!
Isn't this the most amazing mess of interesting stuff? All the threads are hand dyed!
