How's your Scandinavian Rose coming along? I'm loving mine but I seem to be slow to stitch up the blocks...YOU? Send me your picturs people as I'm desparate to see some of these finished blocks in YOUR colourways...pretty please!
~why is it when you want to take a close up picture you have a cat in your way - it didn't matter how many times I tried to move her she purred louded and was stiff there - like I need to take a picture of her paws (again) lol such a nice cat she is though my sweet Tig!
A couple of weeks ago I decided to re-cover my dining room set...it's been 10+ years since we've own it and it was TIME!
So I knew I wanted blue or some measure and here's what I was thinking...
Thanks to all the facebook feedback as I went along this is what I chose and I'm super happy with it!
Tig (aka the brat cat) has already picked a chair...now I need to make a quick quilted throw for the living room to connect the two rooms together with the same blue...what do you think? I ended up recovering them in just a couple of hours, so if you've been putting this undertaking off - wait not further and forge ahead!
Just something so beautiful I just had to share...Quilts in the Snow by Simon Beck some people are calling this a hoax, I'm not sure if it's true or not but to me it's just so beautiful...I can smell the fresh crisp air and can appreciate the beauty - it's real to me...
My friend Danielle made this quilt for her dad last year or so...it turned out simply beautiful, we spent some time picking fabrics, som silks, some strips and dots and boy is this a mans quilt - look at the stripe she added to the bad - and the rounded corners.
Nice job Danielle, hope you don't mind me showing everyone on your behalf?
