This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

Farmer's Wife Start


I have begun with some of the easier blocks, but already I know why I don't usually do traitional.
The practice will be good for me though.
This is not a black and white photo, just usuing up some black and greys for the first few.

Now for some technicolour...



I have finished the Turkish Delight. Hurray!



I am glad this is finished. I did enjoy the process, the hand stitching but I don't think I will be doing anything similar.



The idea is based on a Turkish rug where the edges have been worn and flattened by wear and tear. I should have spent more time on it but it needed to be finished and now it's done.
I was influenced by the "Slow Cloth" stitchers, whose work I love, but now I have got it out of my system.

    I've just started something in the slow cloth line - and I may have it out of my system already! :p

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
