I've been thinking of writing posts on a Friday
showing some of my favourite "things".
Perhaps a treasured piece of china from my cabinet, quilt,
fabric or flower, anything which is special to me.
I hope to write a few lines on the story of why
I post that particular item on my blog.
No time like the present so - first Friday Favourites post.
The book title says it all, my favourite colour, or perhaps I should say one
of my favourite colours.
This book is sub-titled
A Chef's Travels in Turkey,
mouth-watering recipes and photos of spice markets,
fruits and vegetables and stories of people met along
the way. I just fell in love with the dust cover.
My quilting bookcase is turquoise (photo rather grainy I know), I have a
small "washed sea glass" vase, a turquoise/verdigris green candle
holder - always loved these - and all (apart from the bookcase!) are sitting
on a quilt made around 1993. Alaska Dyework fabrics coloured
from rich purple through turquoise and jade green.
This is my hand quilted Trip Around The World - I was into Amish quilts
in a big way back then.
Oh, perhaps a quick photo of the last blooms on
one of the Wisterias - just because I love them.
