Show and Tell Tuesday ~ My first stitchery quilt
For Show and Tell Tuesday, I have have dragged out my first stitchery quilt that I started in 2003. This is the only quilt I have made as a block of the month through a quilting shop, and it came from Candleberry Country in Yarragon. It is called "Pleasures of the Garden" by Viv Robinson (I think..). The original is stitched in a more naive, or prim style, but I neatened it up, couldn't help myself!
It is interesting to look back at, because now I would not stitch on calico, or use black dmc thread. It was a great learning curve for me, and now I am a stitcher rather than a quilter. I have fixed up my messed up star block in the last post too!
Ayden left this morning, and I haven't felt like myself all day. He was fine .. hoped on the bus to the airport with his mates, but he looked so young and blond next to all the other boys who are just that bit older. What I would give for a phone call or text or email to know he made it there safe and the flight was good. Phone calls on Sunday to look forward to.
