Feeling refreshed after super hol climbing in the French Alps (I have come back with a chesty cough, doh!). Such beautiful mountains, we end up coming back year after year!
Before I went away, I just managed to finish the quilt I had been working on for my dear friend, Silke.
She hasn't seen it yet. I am sooo excited, but also incredibly nervous about her seeing it. She put all her trust in me, I hope she will like it, no, love it!
I've never been so nervous about showing my work before, I guess it's different when it's for friends! I have done web design work for friends before, but this time is different, there is no undo button. When it's done, it's done, there's no changing it!
The theme for the quilt is the four seasons.
Four central panels, showing a Devon cottage by a tree with a cheeky sheep, are framed with patchwork in colours of the changing seasons.
The wadding is made from recycled plastic bottles (28 bottles to be precise!). A great way to re-use them if you ask me!
And of course, as it should be, a traditional hand stitched border on the back:
Now this mammoth of a project is done, I'd better get back to stocking up my shop!
