Meet Beryl and Fred
Let me introduce you to Beryl and Fred, they are very old friends of my mother's and they are stopping in my guest cottage this week.
I had never meet them before this week , Not only are they a delight to have around but they are quilters. YES both of them.
Fred can't walk to far these days so when Beryl took up patchwork and quilting Fred followed suit- I have seen some amazing quilts from their Quilting Album and they seem to enjoy making charity quilts and small things for craft fairs to raise the odd pound or two. Their is a lovely photo in the album of Fred sitting at his frame quilting. Beryl's real love is applique.
They bought these two quilts to show me their work.The blue drunkards path is Fred's and the Christmas Applique is Beryls.
Aren't they great for a 77 and 81 year old - I love they have this shared interest especially as Fred is so disabled with his breathing and can't race around anymore.
So the morale of the story - Keep on stitching girls and BOYS.
