I took a look at one of my Patsy Thompson's DVD's that contains a heart motif which I think would look lovely on my next big UFO - the 'Love Much' quilt.
Wish I had used one of Patsy's pretty flower quilting designs (below) instead of the floor tiles as inspiration to quilt this 1930's style quilt. I was trying to be clever.
When my husband was ill and needed to relax, I'd put on a Patsy's quilting DVD so I could sit with him quietly and watch Patsy. He loved her voice -thought she was the bees knees.
I learned so much from Patsy. Her quilting DVD's are the best on the market - bar none.
Patsy takes you gently through all the stages and is a mine - an absolute mine - of information regarding machines, needles, threads, basting fabric and techniques.
If you read this Patsy, then I must tell you that at last - thanks to you - I have the confidence to use some of that lovely sateen you kindly sent me. Stephen was overwhelmed by you and Ernie's thoughtfulness and generosity towards us - complete strangers - at that dreadful time. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart.
Have not 'moved on' - don't think that phrase is relevant to a deep personal loss. We don't completely recover. A residue of the pain will remain - always.
It's Retreat Week!!
