This photo on the left above is one example of a stunning piece of quilt in log cabin style and I have three of these panels in different colour ways and fabrics.
Then at The Summer Brocante I picked up this from Clare of Lou Lou Retro and this really is the most beautiful little off square of fabric I had seen and it will stay as one piece with a twist to it being stitched on by me and be shown off again once more. These were some of the bits that I found on the right.
This next piece in particular caught my eye in a bundle of gorgeous pieces. It is only tiny but it was love at first sight and I could imagine all sorts of things being stitched on it. Only simple things so that it does not take anything away from its natural beauty.
As you can see it is not straight as in perfect lines as far as quilters of today would want it to be but boy to me this has so much more about it...
I am sat here in my sewing room/office and with my cup of coffee and looking out at the birds having their breakfast and morning drink as well it is such a beautiful sight when all manner of species can rub along together. The robin, crows, magpies, tits and a tiny baby squirrel and a baby pigeon as well as a bunch of rather noisy starlings who are making themselves known.
Sitting in my very comfy old chair watching the day begin to unfold is my favourite time, the window
is wide open already and the world is still peaceful. My favourite chair has a quilt over it (shocker) and a quilted rabbit cushion and I can curl in it happily and sip my drink and watch nature all day. Alas time to get on so I will leave you now with a picture of my chair and hope that you all have the most lovely day too. As always Happy Stitching! XX
