Let's start with the teapots.
Now a finished flimsy and I went with 1/2" inner border
in Kaffe Fassett Aboriginal Dot
then 4 and 1/2"border in Philip Jacobs Market Basket.
Measuring 42 and 1/2" x 68 and 1/2" and the
Market Basket fabric is more colourful that
this photo is showing, I'll try again when I've sorted out my
Something old and something new -
the old is not truly old but it's a book my husband bought for me
as a birthday gift in October
a perfect gift for me!
I also love photographing rusting items, flowers and leaves
as they decay, I still can see the beauty in that stage.
Here's a leaf I noticed on the path, obviously well trodden down!
Something new is another book from my husband for Christmas,
I'd seen this one on a post from a blogger, it is a treasure!!
Yep, this is also just me!
The foreword by Safrron Aldridge, a long time friend of the author,
and the introduction by said author Miv Watts, are just a joy to read even
before one begins to go any further!
As yet I've only covered the few pages on Marianne Faithfull ( you need
to be of a certain age to be familiar with her), very interesting!
Incidentally, Miv Watts is the mother of Naomi Watts the actress.
This isn't much of a quilty post I know but I hope to remedy that over the weekend
'cos look where I'm going this Friday!!
Hubby is coming along, for two reasons:
1. he is a painter in various mediums
2. he has lived with KF fabrics and books
for more years than he probably cares to remember!
I am so, so excited!
