Documenting and Preserving

(Parched by Hollis Chatelain) of many quilts with stories features on the website/youtube

Quilt Alliance are doing great work to document and preserve the stories behind  quilts.
Check out these......

I think it is so important to record the stories of your quilts on the back  or somewhere in a journal.
Talking about holding on to Hollis I have a box of denim offcuts that I thought would be great for an abstract quilt......this has inspired me to dig those out over the school holidays!

I'm also going to play with my sun dyes

But back to clearing the backlog of Christmas sewing

And if pincushions are featuring in your gifts this year... consider purchasing ground walnuts (fine grade) from Cracker of a Nut..they keep pins sharp
