Granddaughter decided to dress up as a cowgirl. I have no idea what she thinks a cowgirl is, but possibly a girl who sits on a cow. With a sword.
Then she dressed her cow as a ... cowcow?
I've finished the quilt for Son and Daughter-in-Law that I was in the middle of making when I decided to make one for my piano teacher. This one has more bits than I've ever attempted before: 660 or so. Some unpicking took place during the making of the quilt top but I got there in the end, with the corners meeting fairly well. Son and DIL chose most of the patterned fabrics from my stash and then, since these didn't really go with each other, I chose the self-coloured ones to - or this was the hope - tie the whole thing together. The pink fabric in the middle is part of a napkin that my mother used a lot (or at least, this is an unused napkin from my mother's set. I was touched when Son said, "Oh, we've got to have that.") The general theme of the quilt is nature: cats, mushrooms, insects, sheep, flowers etc. Especially cats.
It's hand-quilted, in an amateurish way. I don't think I'll ever machine quilt. That would be a very fast way of getting it wrong and engendering lots of unpicking.
Don't look too closely, Thimbleanna, but do you see at least one fabric that you gave me?
Now Mr L wants a steam-engine-themed quilt. I have some fabrics but haven't really yet thought what to do. Such fun! Such a waste of time! Thanks, Anna, for getting me into this!
