of stitchery art, all hand done and pieced together my mind strays to who owned it and stitched it. Was there a sewing bee with ladies all sat around a scrubbed table all stitching a piece for a up and coming marriage or was it made with bits of someones old clothes and cloths for their bed to keep them warm and something to do of an evening. I can but wonder and make up stories in my head.
Now unusually I am going to show you something I bought from a lovely friend at The Vintage
So now I have the honour of being the custodian of this very rare piece of unfinished work as it is because for Elaine, time to part with it. Having got this my husband went straight out and found someone who is going to frame it for us ( paper side showing as you can see all the fabrics around each piece of old legal paper) and it will hang with some pride at the top of our stairs for all to gaze at. I wanted to show you this piece of history today and of course when it is ready in the New Year in its frame I will let you see some photos. We are going to have a coffee, Elaine and I and she is coming to see it in its frame and pride of place. There will be a little ceremony for two friends, one who has entrusted the other with such an important and beautiful piece of quilted history.
