Then there is my white piece, lightly quilted around the large flowers with a muslin backing, the collapsing quality. This has made the whole piece so soft and I am going to complain again, I think I prefer starched, rigid. It's much neater and easier to keep flat and pristine. Come to think of it I'm breaking through a few self imposed boundaries here, soft work, relaxed work, simple finishing. Unheard of previously and maybe never to be seen again, we shall see! What I am really pleased about though is the edge of this. Simply bound with bias cotton tape. I was nervous about this, I haven't really done it before, not in a way that I felt would need to stand up to close inspection. I bit the bullet and went for it anyway and I have to say it was a piece of cake, corners? a doddle! Go on, inspect them closely, under a microscope even, I am so proud!
Whilst I was over at Flickr this morning I noticed Gunnel had posted some beautiful images of snow. It seems my Swedish friends have had enough of snow but I commented on how beautiful I thought it was anyway. Yes I remember our disruption through snow. I remember worrying about my husband driving to work in treacherous conditions but I still maintain...it is beautiful. Well you may want to know, maybe divine retribution! but Gunnel, it is snowing here now! It is very pretty but then again I don't have to go out anywhere!
