Whilst ours don't match up to the care and skill employed on the originals, they do have their own charm, even if they look as though they've just rolled out of a night club at 3.00am on a Friday morning and are going to regret their hangovers in the morning!
Richmond and Kew Quilters show (Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th October - hope to see you there!) and partly as trials to see if they are easy enough for my daughters and their friends to make their own versions. The jury is still out on that!
It greets us as we enter the house now. I've shown you how it is, hanging over the keyboard where DD2 practices every day. I didn't want to show you that, though, just the lily flower on the plant to the right that really looks like the one on the quilt (from the bottom RH vase). Hard to pick out, but it's there in pale pink!
My machine sewing this week has been to make replacement café curtains for our bedroom. Not the most exciting sewing to do, but I was able to use some lovely seed scattered 'Je ne sais quoi' fabric for it. Nice to have a change from the ones that had been up for the last 20 years and which were starting to look a bit tatty!
Finally, the coincidence is that this is my 289th blog post and also the day when I've just put my 289th book into my Kindle folder of 'Plum's read this'. Not enough to set the world alight, but I'll be looking around to see if there are any other 289 'things' today!
Hope that you are having a burst of autumnal creativity this week - or just some fun coincidences!
