Stitched today.

I wanted to give you an update on 'Ediths House', the quilt I am working on for my newest grandaughter.

Progress is slow as I am working on teaching projects at the same time.

Today I have been working on a sample that will be made into a kit.
I love working with wool felt and I am trying to keep the colours in vintage shades.
This little heart is a case to protect my scissor points.
I'm going to be hand dying some wool to get the sort of colours I love.

As promised a peak at the quilt....
Flowers in the garden,


The Rowan tree....


and now I'm embroidering the applique border, adding lots of lazy daisy flowers, could be a while with this...

Pop over to The Mouse House to see the little English Mouse I've been working on. She was lovely to work on..

What a beautiful heart! I love the soft colour and your stitching is beautiful. And the quilt you are making looks wonderful too - hope you show pictures when all is said and done...
And, I am so glad you changed the commenting format - every so often I try - always the optimist - and was delighted to see you had changed to this format. Now I can comment to my heart's content!

Angela, The quilt is so adorable! I love everything you've added. I wish I had anything handmade from my grandma but she didn't do any handiwork.
Your scissors case is beautiful too.
Hugs,
Julia

You certainly are keeping busy. I would love to spend a few days with you learning to sew. I much prefer the hands on approach with a live person rather than watching a video on the computer. Your work is so beautiful! have a great week. Tammy
