|At last!, the two quilts are finished, wrapped, labeled, and boxed and on their way, phew,|
,now I can read blogs again yaaay! and sew stuff again- double hurrah!!!
|This quilt is entirely recycled, even the binding is cut from a friends linen shirt, buttons and buttonholes included, I haven't told her what I v done to her shirt, but its alright, she doesn't read blogs....|
but I love them, they have an aura, you can feel the life they have already had I don't see why you shouldn't celebrate that life, show the wear holes, use the frayed edges At the moment I really love the raggedy raw edged look, so we will have to see where it takes me...
Anyway , the second quilt is the one I didn't finish last year, as we moved house. Its 18 inches wide and about seven feet long, its called Marmaris
and its inspiration was the silver fish in the lovely turquoise sea around -yes you have guessed it -marmaris
. I couldn't photograph it in one bit and I had boxed it up before I realised the photos aren't too good and I do really love it but ooh, it feels so good to be back in blog land, reading when I should be stitching.
| mental note for next year----have a quilt AT LEAST three quarters done before I fill in any forms.... good night now, I am off too bed to dream lots of happy dreams about stitching stuff|
the world is my lobster..
