So at last I sew. It has been hard to find time for it as the garden is so prolific as is the allotment, my childrens' exam revision timetable and work.
Anyway today I had a chance to layer and quilt the vintage quilt / throw / tablecloth / extravagance.
Just trimming and binding to do - ready for completion in about 2013!
There are some lovely fabrics from shirts, bits of flannel, sheets, tablecloth and linens. The colours are pale Autumn.
Thank goodness for curved safety pins!
I have just got back from a wonderful holiday on the North Cornwall coast with my lovely family. I am going to use this combination of colours for some future project. I love the juxtaposition of the red and yellow against the turquoise and cerulean blues here.
And this seagull will remind me how lucky we are to have the freedom we have.
