1797 Revisited

And I have a finished flimsy!


In November 2018 I joined a facebook EPP group that were using this quilt


from the V&A as inspiration.


I have used hand dyed fabrics many of which are recycled clothing and enjoyed every minute!


Now Iam wondering if it needs a border!

Catching Up

Many thanks to everyone for their kind comments after my last post - I am all recovered now thank goodness!

I have been busy hand stitching by the fire for the last few days and have a couple of January tasks ticked off my list. First up my RSC block. I am sticking with Dresdens and so another 'light and bright green' block has been added to my pile.


I also now have four more blocks for the next round of my Red Manor House BOM.


Also I thought you would like to see a few of the Christmas presents that I made which I did not blog about before Christmas.





Meanwhile I am busily stitching on my 1797 Revisited quilt - the end is not far away. An update next time.

Happy stitching!

Friday Night with Friends....

.....was a complete washout for me. Having prepped my RSC and most of my Red Manor House BOM pieces in anticipation of a quiet afternoon and evening by the fire appliqueing, I was caught out by the gastro bug that seems to doing the rounds here ovenight, and spent most of Friday in bed.


I hope everyone else fared better and I am off to check up on your posts now. Many thanks Cheryll for getting us together again.
