More Re Cycling & A Winning Quilt.
SIT HERE AND ENJOY THE PEONIES AND ROSES
WHILST SIPPING A COOL GLASS OF SOMETHING
MY BEST WORK IS NOT A QUILT
Well I have been at it again and re-cycled two garden chairs one from brown and the other one from yellow canvas We bought these chairs at a local supermarket whilst on holiday in the Cognac area of France about 15 years ago, So it is appropriate that I have given them the Toile treatment.
Thought you might just like to see how the summer house is looking .Imagine me sitting here sipping a Pimm's and looking out onto the lily pool area of the garden- Bliss.
Also would like to show you my greatest work and it's not a quilt but my son and heir. I can never quite get over how he towers above me and I am in heel's- Well I am only 5ft 1 in so it doesn't' take a lot for anyone to be taller than me.
The quilt though is a winner and came second at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in 2005 and 1st at Quilts UK, Malvern in 2006. It won its prizes for its longarm quilting . It was quilted by Custom Quilt in Co Cork Ireland. Beryl Cadman is the agent for Gammill machines , She and her team do fabulous work and she certainly did the business on this for me.
So Cheers I am off to enjoy a Pimm's in the summer house.
