It is a long time since I last posted, but I haven't been idle. Since my last entry, I designed and made this quilt for my friend's birthday. You will no doubt recognise the traditional "friendship braid", representing the disparate elements that intertwine to form the relationship between good friends. I have turned it on its head as a more positive, optimistic view. This is a quilt in the modern style with large areas of natural linen to highlight the heavy quilting. A quilt specially made for a special person.
We have certainly been experiencing a cold winter, and our cat has taken up residence in front of the heater - where she gets too hot (and very flollopy) and stretches out languidly. Not very elegant, but certainly graceful!
Two weekends ago we went to the "Mad Quilter's Gathering" at the showgrounds. While we enjoyed ourselves, it was very quiet, and the stall holders were certainly free to give us lots of attention. Still, we did our bit to support the economy, and have been having fun with the dyes that we bought. I will post some photos of the results soon.
