|A new edging had to be made.|
After much use it had only become frayed along the edge so I simply added a new strip to it in a pretty contrasting fabric. The main fabrics used for the rest of the quilt had worn really well and I remember the bright purple one with the exotic flowers was a Hoffmann Fabric. I took a photo whilst I was on holiday this time because I did not bother taking any photos of this quilt when I first made it. Seeing the hand embroidered label on it reminded me that I am becoming very lazy with my latest quilts because I have not been bothering to label and date them. I am really going to have to sort myself out.
We had a lovely time in California which was marred only by my breaking a tooth on a crab cake on the punultimate day. This was the start of my troubles, for when I was leaving the dentist back home after a horrendous 4 plane, jet lagged journey back with cancellations and our baggage lost a 2nd time, I tripped and sprained my ankle badly......C'est la vie!
