Lately I have felt like the rolling stone that gathers no moss, always on the move.  Things keeping me busy have included an escape dog, and the resulting fence modifications; travelling right across Melbourne for a replacement Microwave turntable, after I dropped my 2 week old one; doctors visits; parent teacher interviews; and all the other usual stuff that keeps a Mum busy.

The only bit of moss I have been ‘gathering’ has been my Moss Stitch scarf, which I have been knitting in the evenings again, as the summer we never really had, has turned into Autumn.

Star Quilting

On the evenings that I have not been knitting, I have been continuing to quilt my Mothers version of the Fairy Tale Star Quilt that I made a while back.  I am on the final border, tracing about half of the swirls, with stitches.

Daisies from Jennifer

I have also been reminded to share these pictures.  This is the lovely gift I received in the Kris Kringle swap we have amongst our friends from our sewing guild.

Jennifer makes the most esquisite, well executed stitches.  She uses the beautiful Cottage Garden Threads, which you can peruse here.

Embroidered Leaves

Her stitched leaves are such a thing of beauty.  Thank you Jennifer, for such a lovely gift, that must have taken you ages.

  1. Thanks Claire for your lovely comments and beautiful photography. I enjoyed, very much, making it for you.
    Is that a variegated thread “pink thru orange” on the quilt – it is gorgeous. The stars and swirls are beautiful. See you soon.

  2. Your quilting has complimented your quilt perfectly.

    Jennifer has done great work once again, love those threads, perfect stitches. I’m jealous. The colours she has chosen are truly wonderful.
