Rushing it a bit but desperate to finish this autumn version of the Singing Garden Quilt before I go into hospital next week for operation on my spine. Have to do a bit of tidying up on the quilt - filling bald patches etc., which will have to wait a few months I'm afraid. You'll find no definite pattern to my quilting here. With this particular quilt it's a case of filling the spaces ASAP.
I just hope the finished overall effect will be OK.
Following the op I've been told not to lift anything for a fortnight - and only lift the weight of a kettle for a further 4 weeks.
Not thrilled about that . . .
Meanwhile having a good look at my Jinny Beyer book "Quiltmaking by Hand" which I bought years ago. A great book with lots of ideas and information. Jinny stitches all her fabulous quilts by hand so I'm having to follow suit for the next few months. Good for the soul. . . .
Am primitive cook.
Enjoy quilting/appliqué but seeking to break out of my comfort zone - starting with feathers aka Patsy Thompson..
Like gardening, studying birds, drawing.
Relaxing and pottering about are high on my agenda.
Love music, play the ukulele and sing my heart out with local choirs.
