I've had a bit of a day for uncovering treasure. When in town this morning I called in at a couple of charity shops and made some lovely discoveries
Some lovely florals - the dark blue background is a ladies dress and has copious amounts of fabric in a full skirt
And another batch of checks - the lilac in the front right hand corner is a pair of ladies pyjamas so again quite a bit of fabric in those legs - there'd be even more if they were my size, but hey you can't be greedy :o)
Then when I got back home a parcel on my doorstep contained these three complimentary books for making feathered stars - I'd bought them second hand from a lady on one of the online quilting yahoo groups I belong to. I've long been in awe of the feathered stars that Dawn makes (along with others of you that I can't remember at present) and these books might just spur me on to have a go at one.
On a slightly different note you might remember the stitching day we held on World Quilting Day to make children's quilts for our local Women's Refuge.
Prior to that I showed you a blue stripey quilt top which I'd stitched lots of bright stars onto.
I think she's made a lovely job of it and it goes to join the other 35 we've made as a group so far, with more in the pipeline. It should really help to brighten up some small person's life a little I hope.
The sun's shining beautifully here in Taunton this morning, hope it is with you too!
