Hi there! I’ve photographed a couple more quilts so I thought I’d share.
This one isn’t mine, but my mum’s. I seem to have acquired a lot of her stuff over the years.
A hundred years ago, our quilting group held a challenge for our annual Rose Week. Each year, our small town holds a Rose Week celebration, as our town holds the southern hemisphere’s largest private rose garden (apparently, I just know there are lots of roses here in October). I’ve long forgotten what the challenge was titled, or the rules except to say that I think it must have been floral based. I do remember the winner – just stunning and if I can find a photo I’ll scan it.
I’m just a beginner at needleturn. I really want to be good at it, though I guess like all things it’s practice makes perfect.
Today is the final day of school which means for the next two weeks I get the added thrill of my children’s company each day. It’s amazing how used to being alone one gets. I fully expect routines, such as they are, to be thrown out the window very quickly.
