Unfinished/Finished
 I bought this old grandmother's garden quilt top for a song at a market. Pulling out the paper templates was interesting. The person who made it had used old New World vouchers. I think there were two other people who have worked on it- one who used older ...

Give pears a chance
Autumn! But it's still so warm. Too many pears and the beginnings of a project. A tutorial in fact for Extra Curricular magazine . I think the finished result is going to be pretty. I haven't done much embroidery, but Melissa's work has always inspired me.
