I think the only item I've never made which required needle skills,
has to be a quilt!
I do love quilts and admire the beautiful ones designed and sewn by
quilters from around the world. . . . . . .but somehow I never had the
time to take up quilting along with all the other dressmaking, sewing,
knitting, embroidering, cross stitching etc. which I've done since a young
girl. I no longer do much sewing due to changes in my eye sight limiting
close up work. . . . . .plus my old Singer needs maintenance.
I do knit, mostly evenings whilst watching a TV series or a movie. I feel
better knowing I'm still creating something rather than just being glued to a
screen for hours. I knit just simple items which don't require fancy patterns.
My favorite small quilt, the size of a throw, is one I bought several years ago
when I was doing a makeover in this guest bedroom and going for
a French country look. It's just two shades of cream and beige - nice with
the linens and vintage heavy linen bolster and pillow covers I brought back
The toile fabric, even though machine quilted, is a nice addition on a cool night.
Glad Michael is back again and we can get together for
Scribble Picnic this week.
Head over to see what the group has come up with - we
may even have some talented Scribble Picnic quilters sharing their
