Already more than one week since last entry! Time flies as we are busy getting ready for the holidays.
I have not been doing so much sewing but still I have something to show that I made some while ago.
FRENCH QUILTING: this is a typical bed spread for the south of France. Young women in the 19th century had to sew 12 of these per hand and a white wholecloth before getting married!
I sewed mine with the machine though and I stopped after the first one! I tried to quilt a typical pattern in the border.
For some more information on french quilting, have a look at that book.
I saved some time to sew this small purse for my DS who wanted one after seeing the first one I had made.
Last week, 3 ladies from my quilting group came round to prepare our big meeting in November.
They didn´t come empty-handed, see how lucky I am: Petra brought me some yarn and the color combination looked so intriguing, I had to start some socks right away. Martina and Bea brought me (among other goodies) the very nice knitting book and I LOVE the original title: "Never knit your man a sweater unless you´ve got the ring"!
I don´t think I will post again before going on holiday and I don´t know if I will be able to post from France.
So see you at the end of July if not. Enjoy the summer!
From Cold and Wintery Virginia!
