Somewhere to share some of my hobbies. I like to quilt and also do machine embroidery of various kinds.

From Mum and Nana with love.
Daughters 21st quilt.
When my mother died I found a pile of hand embroidered squares with some fabric that was intended to make a quilt for my daughter. When Julie's 21st came around I decided to complete it and give it to her as a combined effort from Mum and Nana. I substituted one of the fabrics (the green tone on tone ) to make it less little girly and changed the pattern to a double Irish chain. It was a big job and a fairly emotional one by the end. I know my Mum would have been thrilled to see it and Julie was delighted to have it.
