Pansy garden and old quilt...

Its a beautiful day here today as long as you can find a place in the sun thats out of the wind and as I look out of my window I remember that I have not shown you my pretty pot of pansys. I am not really much of a gardener preferring to stitch instead but I do love splashes of colour in pots around my garden.

Today I think its also time to show you another of my old quilts, this one I have very little information about it is quite large 93" square, about 1840's so the sale tag said! Made from a wonderful variety of Civil War fabrics in a simple nine patch. The fabrics on the front are in quite good condition but sadly the fabric on the back which is a stripe is rotting.

Not long until we take my patterns and books to Spring market in the USA and I am now excited and nervous, my freight will leave this week and then I can plan what clothing I need as I think it will be much colder there than here!

I am off to meet my Vince for lunch,
