I managed another two blocks again in September.
The first one (No. 23), the hydrangea print, was a little harder to quilt than usual, as the fabric is a polished cotton and the glazed surface is hard to get the needle through, but I think it was worth it!
The other one (No. 24) is the one I’m calling my Bonwit Teller hatbox. For those not of the correct age or nationality, Bonwit Teller was a high-end US department store which featured a stylised posy of violets scattered on its packaging, branded merchandise, and of course, hat boxes. It is sadly no more, but is fondly remembered, and with good reason from what I’ve read.
Six more to go. At this rate, I might actually have them all done by the end of the year!
Bee, Myself and I is a forum for ‘selfish sewing’; any stitchery which is purely for pleasure and not to a deadline or for anyone else. The original concept belongs to Carla of Granny Maud’s Girl.

Till next time.
