Well friendly campers I have finally managed to get here to post after deciphering the new Google Chrome and I am showing you great restraint in not expressing what I am really feeling about the wasted hours this lovely morning so we shall move right along to the reason for this post...Tuesday's Treasures with MELODY
My treasure today is my small but sweet collection of minature quilts made for me as gifts by a lady who used to belong to our quilting group. Sadly she moved overseas and we lost touch. Her work was extraordinary and exquisite to say the least and I am constantly amazed when I look at them.
I still adore the fabrics in these little quilts. The tiny dresden plate is the cutest thing ever.
On the subject of blocks I have finished Baltimore block 7 and on to Block 8.
Block 7 looked quite simple but I had so much trouble with the hearts in the centre. Trying to get them to match up was like herding cats....I'd get 2 right and then the next one wrong. In the end I have decided to live with it and I am not unpicking and redoing anymore hearts. So there is a lesson there I guess never judge a book by it's cover or a block by it's design until you have stitched it.
I am off to visit Melody and see who is treasuring what. What do you treasure? Do you stop and think about all the little momentoes and memories that make up your life? It is a lovely thing to do to take stock regularly and remember what makes us smile.
Have a lovely rest of your Tuesday. I feel a cuppa calling.
