I Heart Quilts
Well I finally got the finger out & got stuck in to the dutch fabric quilt, here it is on my dining table being pinned & stretched for quilting, my least fav part of making a quilt, although a real necessary job, so you just grin & get on with it. It is worth it though, I guess like blocking crochet pieces the finish is better with patience !!!
On to the awkward quilting, am I moaning too much? Sorry on to the delightful job of quilting three layers on a small machine delightfully placed on my dining table, where by the way i do all my crafting, which has given the table a rather beaten "vintage" look :D. It didn't take too long though because I opted for a simple straight quilt in between the squares look!!!
Edged it in blue gingham and Hey Presto Its finito............................
I just need to embroider the hearts for total completion, I'm thrilled with it as i really do love the fabrics, lovely blues & soft reds, not normally what i go for but hey change is good yeah!!!!
Hearts are one of my fav motifs too, so i'm really singing, not a pretty sound mind you, not a talent i possess! But much to the delight of my children & long suffering man I do insist on trying, i'm convinced i'll have a breakthrough one day, in fact i'm certain of it :D
My friend Evelyn came back from a holiday in France & brought this for me........
Oh but i squealed with delight when i saw it........ its actually a candle holder, I can see it now hanging right in front of my hallway mirror, all lit up as the evenings get shorter again...... blissful!!!
I try to hang hearts in as many places as i can, spread the love & all that...............
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last few posts, its encouraging & i feel like i've made so many new friends, a real blessing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So Lots of Love & a heart for all of you
Have a sweet evening Karen X
