There has been some months of hand sewing hibernation. The joy of it just woke up again.
Thread, needle, leather thimble and a finger pin keeper – recipe for a good train ride.
I am reproducing some blocks shown in Kaffe Fassett’s V&A Museum Quilts book. I am dreaming of going to London to see the museum’s quilt exhibition this spring/summer.
Preparing the pieces is time consuming, more so than the actual piecing. Listening to BBC Radio 4 makes the job more pleasurable. Currently there is a series of programmes about the great-grand-niece of Ludwig Wittgenstein and her inherited box of family memories. A delight for the ear.
