In between quilts…and a bit of tv

Sunday, productive Sunday.

I spent 5 hours blanket stitching the appliques on my new project and now I feel like I should search the web for a pair of brand new shoulders – mine are officially rubbish bin-material… 

The project I’m working on cannot be disclosed yet, as the lucky owner-to-be does not know what she’s getting – which means the pics will be posted in a couple of weeks 🙂

In the meantime I finished the lovely Kaffe Fasset bedspread I blogged about some time ago.. the centre is very simply quilted for added softness and cosiness, whilst the quilting on the border follows the paisley pattern and the flowers – I had a lot of fun doing it!

It’s so lovely and warm that I upgraded it from passive bedspread to Downton Abbey marathon sofa throw – a task that requires clench-resistance and snack-survival qualities that not all throws have these days…

And if you are D.A. fans, have a look at theMakower fabric range inspired by the tv series, I think it perfectly renders the Crowley girls spirit.. I’m thinking of getting the Dowager selection – I usually don’t go for dusty colours but these mauve shades are soooo cool and they would look nice in my living room… or maybe it is just because I find Maggie Smith’s character irresistible… She really brings shrewdness to a whole new level, don’t you think?
