yesterday evening, walking back along the path, one of my favourite spots for shooting photographs
scraps gathered as a first step towards a small journey, I'm thinking along the lines of a so-called small Allotment combining bright silks from Jude, eco-prints made during Marijke's workshop back in 2018 and delicate linens from Catharina
always the need to find order in the chaos
How well suited to the Allotment Cloth.
This too was recorded yesterday late afternoon, as it had been a grey-stay-indoors-day, at last, I managed to get loads done on the laptop and sewing machine. Most of the stitching is done by hand, but the horizontal bands are sewn together on the Singer.
I'm still determining how much of the quilting I will do by hand and what the Singer will handle.
There will be just two layers, as I want it to retain the light feel it has thanks to the linens and it can be used as a table cloth or Summer evening wrap. The backing will be white/cream made with what I have in my diminishing stash.
I love how it reminds me of the land.
