Doovering

Over the weekend I decided the time had come to set up the quilting doover again - it's been dismantled since Christmas and I have a couple of quilt tops that would suit all-over meandering. I need all the practice I can get. This is the first of 2 Leanne Beasley's "Travel Quilts" I'm making - it's for our daughter-in-law Peta and is in Woodstock fabric.

Today is our 30th wedding anniversary. 15 July 1978, a beautiful sunny but chilly day (just like today), was the start of an enormous adventure. 4 days after the wedding we travelled to Holland where we were based for the next 11 months while travelling around UK and Europe and working for some of the winter. The adventure continued as our babies arrived and we've had the joy of seeing them grow into wonderful adults.

Early this year I received an email from the editor of "Homespun" telling me one of her staff had been reading blogs and had come across pictures of some dolls I'd been making. She then asked if I would send her some photos for the mailbag section and here they are in this month's magazine. I was the lucky winner of some Clover products.
