I worked a little on my family quilt blocks last night, the one above is of my eldest chef son Joe and his family, it was taken a few years ago, but it's the best one I have of them all together.
My granddaughter now is in uni doing forensic science and my grandson is in his last year at high school, he wants to be a sports/ Physical Ed teacher.
The lace piece under the photo is from a linen hanky that my dear friend Shari gave me.
I was very reluctant to pull it apart, but I know I would never use the hanky and it was a shame to just shove it in a drawer never to be seen again.
I thought it would look perfect here, I have embellished the beautiful piece with Melanie roses, trailing up and out at the sides.
I also added the vintage lace to the top right, and held it down with detached chain stitch buds and leaves..
I'll do a bit more on this or one of the other blocks tonight, as I have started a Dear Jane Quilt, and I really want to work on that a bit...

It's so nice to back here in my old blog, it's like coming home into a lovely warm , cosy home, where I feel comfortable in my daggy slippers and I can be myself...
Thank you for coming back to visit me,
