We ended up not going. To the quiltshop I mean. My friend An and I decided to stay at my place to stitch and have lunch. I began another motif on my sampler, and she began a red cross stitch pattern that her mother who passed away did not complete and was actually making for her!
An's been working on a project for her work as well - her company recently upgraded their logo, spiffed up the colors and then asked all the employees to purchase, make, efin, contribute artwork to brighten the office. All artwork reamining property of the company. An decided to make a little dresden plate quilt after she had taken a workshop a few months back. She's completed the quilting, it only needs the binding and label. Here it is:
It's new bright and sunny day again today - and I think it's a good idea to spend more of it in the garden. Here in Holland the weather is often very cold, wet, damp, and grey. So you can imagine people complain a lot about the weather. But not only do they complain about bad weather (who doesn't?) they also complain about the good weather: it's too warm, the sun is too bright so their eyes hurt, the dust everywhere, oh, dear now the windows have to be cleaned, will the dykes dry up and not be able to hold the water? All I can say is I'm pleased that for as long as it lasts, I don't have to come home with a wet and muddy dog and go through the paw and belly washing ritual after every walk. But Darwin, being a little pig in dogs' clothing, will find something to get dirty in or dirty with......!
Anyhow, going back to the subject of quilting, I'll post the fabric as soon as I get it to share with you.
Have a wonderful day!
