~A Gardener's Journal......All Quilted Now~



Woo hooo......
After a few days of not being well with a cough that won't go away which has turned into a cold now I had a phone call today from my Quilter Debbie who said that my Gardener's Journal has been quilted!!!!
I had thought about quilting it myself but once she started talking feathers and swirls etc I thought go ahead and let her do it as me not having quilted anything like this couldn't do this!!!

On looking at it I thought it would have been better to surround the centre house with the red fabric but it is as it is now...

Mr Armchair kindly went to see Debbie and picked it up for me and now I can't stop looking at it....
I think I might take it up to GDITC (Girls Day in the Country) next year and show it off!!!

Now to the binding but I won't start until I feel better
I see an OPAM (One Project A Month) coming up!!!

It looks wonderful!! It really is a treat to get a quilt professionally quilted with feathers and fun things. I hope you feel better soon so you can get the binding done and take more photos for another show and tell. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
