The post lady and I are becoming well acquainted!
In addition to the usual Christmas cards, bills and junk mail of the season, boxes and envelopes have started arriving from all sorts of interesting places. Today, we’re featuring fabrics from Rita of Gwennie’s Garden in Belgium and Jan of The Snail of Happiness in Wales. Rita’s are the blue and yellow fabrics, in very generous quantities, and Jan’s is the deep red with white spots, some leftover Fair Trade organic cotton from one of her own projects. Thank you both very much, ladies! I think the blue and red will both be used on the front, the yellow will find a place on the back.
The finished centre is now back on the design wall where I can add to it piece by piece. One day soon, too, I’ll have to do something about embroidering the quilt’s name above the lower rabbit, before it gets too large to move around easily.
I’ve taken out all the papers except the ones on the very edge, so I’ve now got plenty to work with, especially as I bought 200 more yesterday.
The scrap basket is calling me…
