Thank you so much everyone who sent me their best wishes for a speedy recovery. I am sorry I have not responded to you individually but that is because unfortunately I am not making a speedy recovery. I am sure Rosie would tell me that my immune system is becoming less efficient due to my advanced(!) age… Never mind … Ben persuaded me to take him down to Lannacombe beach earlier and I am sure that the fresh air and wellie boot full of sea water will have done me good!
However, I have been enjoying some gentle knitting – my little bunny now has his jumper – though I haven’t made an alternative fabric top for non-knitters yet – maybe tomorrow ….
As I haven’t any new work to show you today, I thought I’d give you a quick sneak preview of the work I have been doing on my Rosie & Bear quilt. I have been busy mounting the embroideries in 10″ squares from a Moda Layer Cake (this one’s Flora by Lauren and Jessi Jung) using reverse applique. Then I’ve set them into 13.5″ blocks ready to piece into the full 12-month quilt. More to follow soon … plus photos of the remaining blocks that will (at last) complete the set.
