Oh, by the way - I just can't say enough about my Fiskars snippers - these are the best - as I've said mine are the little more expensive ones with the titanium blades!
At first wash and tumble dry - yes - there is quite a bit of lint in the washing machine and the dryer filter - wow - lots! This quilt has had two washes and drys and I am sure it's next housemaid won't have a problem!
I do have a friend who made her quilt out of used denim jeans - too heavy and 'karked' the washing machine - maybe leave denim alone, Girls!
The above is a pic of a gorgeous antique bowl Mum bought for me at Mount Tamborine in the hinterland of Queensland's glorious Gold Coast - a nicer place on earth you couldn't find - but then I say that about a lot of places!
Not inexpensive and all it says on the bottom is 'H. Bequet Fait main..Hand made Handwerk Made in Belgium' - maybe we paid a little more than we should have - who knows - still a very pretty piece of bric-a-brac that I don't display these days anyhow!
I should be out with Girlfriends! - not to be - so I will try to muster up enough energy to get something done!
