Yes! It is finished.
|Now,, what am I going to call it? I don't want the same name as in the magazine, as it has some of their alternate blocks and a very different colourway.|
|The magazine picture. A publication no longer in print, which was QUILTS with style and started in Jan/Feb 2006 and continued over 6 issues. I started mine sometime in 2008 with a lot of life's happenings along the way.|
Since I last posted, I've hardly used the camera, but did find a few photos I'd taken over the last few weeks and also we did have a lovely day out to a town with lots of Antique and Old Wares dealers, so here we go.
|Late afternoon sky with moon.|
|Coming on dusk.|
These were taken from our backyard.
Our day to Tyabb was to look for a small chest of drawers or similar for my cones of cotton (for Bubs) instead of being all muddled in a plastic tub. No luck but did pick up a couple of bits (naughty!).
Another item is this lovely old book,, which is a teeny shade younger than me.
|This edition is from 1950.|
|One of pages of wonderful black and white images.|
I did fall for this book, as it reminded me of photos I'd seen in my great grandmother's Country Life magazines, that she allowed me to look at. They were passed on to her, by an older gentlemen who lived nearby.
I was the lucky recipient of a large international envelope during last week. What was inside?
I am not able to locate this magazine locally any more and happened to mention it to Sue at Quilt Times, who's quilt appears on the cover and instruction inside, so to my surprise she sent me one. A huge thanks.
A couple of photos to end. These are closeups of some of the quilting on the star quilt, as I did try and custom quilt it. Probably not the best, but so be it.
Hopefully our weather will cool down soon, and I'll be a bit more energetic and have a bit more to post about. This weekend we have the show I've been talking about and on the 6th March we are going to an open day at "Harewood House". No, not the one in Yorkshire, but here on the coast of South Gippsland. It is an old homestead and I hope to get some good photos and be able to blog about it.
Hope everyone is having a good week, take care and lots of huggles to you all.
