Now that the background quilting is in place there's only the birds to see to and the binding to add.
I've outlined the text with hand stitch and we've infilled with free motion quilting. What's interesting is looking to see if it's obvious who's quilted which bits. Hopefully we work in a similar fashion and it won't be obvious!
With Festival of Quilts looming, I'm adding to the pincushion mountain. Here's the latest additions with many still to come.
Meanwhile, summer has arrived and the raspberry canes are laden this year. I think this is going to be the best crop ever.
I'm picking every evening with far too many to eat fresh each day. Try as I might!!
Good job we like jam! If I make 3 or 4 jars every other day we'll have plenty to last all year.
The garden continues to provide pleasure each day. He who gardens thinks the stuff we get to eat is the most important aspect but I disagree. No matter how tasty the fruit and veg are, the flowers are also food for the soul!
Thanks for reading this today - I'll write again soon. Love Linda
