........ I have finished the basic background quilting on the Baltimore bed runner. Because it is too big for the design wall, I had to take it into the house and put it on the bed for photos!
the little pin is to remind me that there is a raw edge that needs to be fixed
now that I have quilted the backgrounds, the next job will be to embellish the leaves and flowers with quilting
I have finished another stitchery - this is the ninth one! It took a bit longer, as there was a lot of satin stitch
over in Melbourne, my lovely friend Meredithe gets together with Miss GJ and Miss H on Tuesdays to stitch. They decided to call themselves the Eliott stitchers, as they watch The House of Eliott while they are sewing. I had suggested in a recent email to Meredithe that I should get the box set and watch on Tuesdays too, as that is my man sewing day. A couple of clicks later and the box set of the three seasons was winging its way to me. I remember watching this on tv years ago, and I am looking forward to enjoying all the beautiful clothes again
it should have been Malcolm making dinner today, but I had to take over his duties as he was otherwise engaged, stacking his delivery of logs!
