Close up

Linking up with Monday Maker today to share progress with my Leaves quilt, which came out of the wash safely and with lots of crinklyness.  Look at the colour catchers! Thank goodness they work. (Also note the new home-made Ikea fabric ironing board cover - the old one was a bit skanky:-)



I think I might pluck up courage and enter Leaves in the applique category in the Bloggers Quilt Festival, but I still have to find a location for some arty photographs, because although we went for a walk in the woods yesterday (in between torrential rain and hail) and it couldn't have been in a more scenic setting I Forgot to Take It With Me.

Here's a glimpse.


Despite forgetting the quilt, we did come across this Small White butterfly, enjoying some stitchwort.




 Isn't it amazing?!

  2. Catherine, I cannot wait to see the Big Reveal of Leaves. And as far as finding the perfect spot for pix, but not having it with you, I immediately thought of going to the store and forgetting the 50% coupon!
