This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Photo shows my block for the Hurricane Katrina fund-raising quilt "All That Jazz".

Complete Solvy DYB block


Complete Solvy DYB block

This photo is of the complete cream-on-cream block for Mary Lewis. Apart from the fan, linen circle with tatting and the sea-horse, there are some tiny flat copper rings covered in buttonhole stitch, embroidered lace, vintage pearl buttons and more.

I've seen a few creamy-toned blocks and other projects on blogs lately, and they are all lovely. The seahorse on this particularly appeals to me.

this is a beauty. I love the shadows and the hints of texture given by the differetn whites and creams. the tatting and trims definitly add to this.
