Yesterday this came in the post for me - I'm not exactly sure why I deserve this but I'm not complaining. It's a beautifully made teensy little union jack (about 5" x 2") and folds away neatly with a ribbon tie. It's a thread catcher which you place on the arm of the sofa whilst you're sewing and watching tv at the same time - genius. Thank you so much to my special bloggy friend, Helen, aka Archie the Wonder Dog for this stunning little surprise.
And then my younger twin daughter decided to make herself another pillow to adorn her bed of many pillows. Designed on Touchdraw, she grabbed a heap of Kona solids and pieced and quilted with with black Aurifil 50wt. Yes, she is her mother's daughter.
She chose some of the wonderful Robert Kaufman Modern Blocks fabric for the back. I've stashed some of this away as I think this line really makes the perfect backing for any modern quilt. I love the idea that, even when it's flipped upside down, you still get a riot of shape and colour.
