My daughters best friend, who moved away was visiting York, so we headed out to meet her. It is over 2 years since they last saw each other. It was an ejoyable Good Friday. I wandered off visiting my usual haunts like Cath Kidston. Fell in love with this bag that was in the shop window. It instantly reminded me of an embroidery I did years ago.
|A little crumpled as its been in my sewing box for sometime. Do you think it would work.|
Finally I would like to tell you about a lovely thankyou present I received from the Louise over at Gephart 836. Shes a talented crafter, who also writes amusing blogs and takes beautiful photos (wish I could). Please pop over and view her blog. I so look forward to reading her posts, and also to receiving her comments. She reminds me of myself, in many ways. Burning the tea while on the computer. Yes I am guilting of that one (I hate cooking) but she is far braver than me and writes about it. Anyway she very kindly posted me a quilting magazine. I was truly overwhelmed as it was totally unexpected, and it had travelled so far. My first ever quilting magazine as well, as its a new hobby for me. Full of patterns, giving exact amounts of fabric, no working out quantities.
There was a lovely article about a young girl and her adventures in patchwork and sewing. Reminded me of myself.
She will be a marvellous sewer in years to come.
and also a CD was included. I spotted this tradional quilt pattern, which is very simple and unfussy, maybe for my son. Thankyou again Louise, you make blogging for me Fun.
