We've been house sitting in Melbourne while our DD and her husband were on their honeymoon so I didn't have access to my computer while we were away and I have done some lovely quilty things so I have lots to share.
Just after the wedding I took a day class in Broderie Perse with Di Ford Hall, using her new design she's making using her new fabric line, Giggleswick Mill. I had lots of fabric from her previous line, and I like to have my quilts look a bit different so I used her previous fabric line and made up my own design for the central block. I also used some other floral fabric which was in the same colour tones as Di's fabric. I hadn't tried broderie perse before but I found it to be very freeing and I think it's something you just need to practice to gain confidence. I lightly glued the pieces in place and now have to stitch them down using needle turn applique.
Of course I've done nothing to it since so I hope the pieces have stayed in place. Anyway it's great to be back as I've missed writing my blog and staying in touch with all the blog readers. I hope I can get the blog problems sorted for the iPad but at least I can use the main computer.
Hugs, Jan Mac
