A lovely welcome to you, lovely lovelies♥ 'Tis Sunday afternoon here. A chilly, autumnal Sunday afternoon, where all day Old Man Sun has played hide and seek with the clouds; where every now and then magical bursts of sunbeams have sprinkled warmth and happiness upon my humble abode. The day has flown by. My goodness time flies when you are having fun, doesn't it. How has your week been?? Down here the powers that be are beginning to ever-so-slowly lift the restrictions that are in place, and people are beginning to step their toes out of their homes and brave the world. As for me I have had the best fun playing. Playing with sweet Liberty hexies, vintage embroideries, branches adorned with autumn leaves, sweet birdies.....so, so many pretties. I have had the best of times playing 'photographer' and 'stylist', too.....well at least trying to.
The sides, top and bottom of Sweet Sunday have now been squared with triangles in readiness for the border. For the border I added a lovely embroidered piece, which I snippety snipped from a cot flounce. I happened upon this pretty a couple of weeks ago in a quaint, little vintage store, for a proverbial song. This embroidered pretty was waiting patiently for me to take it home. It was just one of those happenstance kinda moments. There are about eight metres in total, just enough for this quilt. It is so pretty; perfect for this quilt where vintage linens sit happily alongside Liberty fabrics. I am delighted with this quilt. I am delighted with the linen embroideries of sweet ladies, flowers, pretty teacups, butterflies and sweet little birdies; all sitting ever so prettily, in the friendliest of manner, among all the sweet Liberty prints. Why, me thinks every scrumptious pretty within this quilt would look rather lovely framed within the confines of a fancy, beribboned frame. =) What sayeth you???
I am going to enjoy a little, sweet Liberty hexie stitching this Tassie, autumnal Sunday afternoon. A little stitching of dancing hexies, dosy doe-ing around the border of all that Liberty lusciousness.....perfect. Well, that is of course, if I can do the maths. For a mathematically challenged gal such as I, an impossible task, really. Oh well, perhaps I will just play, dotting a hexie here and a hexie there, and see what pattern magically reveals itself to me. Afterall, 'tis a visual gal that I am.
Until the next time..........
