The festivities of Anzac Day have begun, so it is back to quilting chatter!
Who's the Lucky Girl, again? This is the delightful Dolly Quilt I have received from Marilyn in Kansas City, USA - thank you, Marilyn, I just love it - the workmanship is just perfect in every detail - the colours, perfect for my home and it will be hung for all to see and admire!
Look at this gorgeous Postcard, message in an envelope and little 'business' card - a true professional and a very generous girl!
A little sewing happened this morning - these blocks are the start of my antique repro quilt - I must find a name for it even though it is still only a twinkle in my eye! Maybe Tumbling Steps as it will consist of courthouse step blocks and tumber blocks! I love the bright, rich repros - the bottom pink and mauve are from the Regency Dandy range, c. 1810!
There was more in the mail yesterday - a quilt magazine, from Marilyn, also! And, my much awaited package from Quilt Fabric Delights with Rosalie Quinlan's Redwork Houses!I can't wait to get started, but must get my act into gear first!
Is anyone else this lucky? Dear Adrian, our next-door neighbour, keeps our lawn mowed beautifully with his reel mower! Adrian is a tee-totaller, so we can't even buy him a stubby, but he knows how much we appreciate this wonderful gesture and we do try to make up for it at Christmas!
It's a long weekend here, so hopefully more sewing will get done! Early tomorrow morning, my little man will come with me to take Poppa to the airport, then maybe it will be a Happy Houses afternoon - hope so! I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!
