The sewing has been rather slow, although the Postcards - due middle of next month - are taking shape nicely.
But today was spent taking down the Summer QuiltWall hangings and the Summer bed quilt and hanging the Winter ones.
I also decided to try and put a bit of order into my storage system, all the quilts were taken out of the zip bags and I sorted into some order.
This is where most of them are stored
Firstly I changed the wall hanging in the bedroom. This was going to be a Dear Jane Quilt, hahaha I completed these blocks then decided ummmmm other things to do. so I put them together with these stitcheries
Of course the thick quilt had to be put on the bed
Sorry for the angle of the photo, but it was difficult to get it all in.
Moving on to the hallway. These were difficult to get a full on photo. But you will get the idea.
This is my Purple People Eater
Hearts Do Mend
This is the Quilt facing the Front Door. This was made in 2001 to celebrate The Federation of Australia
note the number of states outlined in black. This was how it was in 1901. The fabrics were in a swap
made by the courageous Vicki of Zen of the Needle and Thread. The idea was we sent 100 6in squares in the Federation Colours, and she very bravely with the kind help of her Mum, swapped them around and sent them back. Because of a small mix up, we finished with 101, I managed to use all of the fabrics.
Flowers is one of my favourites. This is in wool felt, it was beautiful to embroider and I loved stitching it, even tho it was rather expensive.
Many moons ago I belonged to a land group and managed a monthly Wednesday Meeting. When I left, much to my surprise the ladies had banded together and gave me a gift voucher for quite a substantial sum so I wanted to make something special with it. So purchased the fabrics for this quilt.
Flowers from Wadham House.
It's very chilly now, the heater is on, and stitching is ready for sitting with The Scot tonight.
I guess there are some bright spots in Winter after all.
