Do you remember me showing an old cupboard and talking of having it painted red - Blushingham - well here it is plus the canvas of My Angel - extreme? - well maybe, but I am feeling so good about my new-look dining area! Australian designer china gracing it - Robert Gordon has been stored in the shed for over 5 years!
Sorry to bring up this subject, Christine of Once Upon a Quilt ... Now, Christine is a collector of honey pots and has an amazing collection - and I have been known to collect a few antiques in my day, says she The Minimalist! I really adore this rare little antique treasure, did have a little thought of posting it to Christine, but that little thought flitted out of my mind very quickly! Maybe I should add a codicil to my Will! Hey, this is really the TRUE colour of Blushingham - very pretty!
A gorgeous day for mail today - all the way from Pink Penguin in The USA - do visit her blog and Etsy site - thank you so much, Ayumi! Gorgeous girl, if you haven't visited, please do, you will be thrilled!
A very little sneak peek for Someone Special - French General Rural Jardin Chanvre Blue arrived today - I hope you Repro Enthusiasts approve it for the background of a very special quilt! I feel sure Kathie of Inspired by Antique Quilts will aprove - what do you think, Kathie, will have a little chat one day soon? One day all will be revealed!
Not much stitching happening and I really shouldn't be showing my designing in progress - but I really feel I have achieved a long-time-wish ... let's hope it all comes up nicely in fabric - and yes, all my own work - lets not talk about Copyright issues here - I'm over it! If one has the ability, let's just share!
