I love Tuesdays
Tuesdays? that's the day I meet with a group of friends to stitch, or not depending on one's mood, but we do have a lot of laughs and fun; advice is given freely and taken, or not also depending on one's mood!
I finished putting the hearts onto the dull blue quilt top, it is made from five inch squares and I am at last running low on some colours. The hearts are the pre-cut ones I bought ages ago from Susan Claire at Toad Hall, I like the effect - what do you think?
Thank you for the help in finding out all about my mystery object, it's a Singer Craft Guide and their site is full of information - a friend said she has happy memories of helping her mother make rugs. Also at the A&C fair they had tables of various items purely for display. I couldn't resist the look of these sewing machines -
Many years ago I quilted with three friends, and we hit upon the idea of making small quilts - by hand of course- a different technique each time; we each made the same number of blocks, we would then draw lots to see who got to put that one together and keep it. We did a Cathedral window, then a Pinwheel and then the drunkard's path which I won and set as a Love Ring -
The bug I caught that kept me away from the prison on Saturday has settled in my throat - it even meant I had to sit quietly for part of the time today, too much talking set me coughing!! :))
Thank you for your comments -we'll talk again soon.
