More for “Alice”

I’ve just had a couple of unexpected days with The Kettles; a friend who has family up their way offered me a lift so I jumped at the chance! It was lovely to spend precious time with my darling Mum and Dad.

On the way home, my driver – not me!! – suggested we shop er, stop at Threadbear for a little look-see………and oh yes, I did shop……

These little bits were calling my name

20150609-135047.jpgand thoughts of “Alice” had been floating in my head, so, from memory, because there is none of the other fabric left, I bought this shirting

20150609-135205.jpgfor the appliqué border background, which I think works well with the centre shirting background

20150609-135246.jpgand in the interim I’ve been cutting leaves

and buds

20150609-135339.jpgand flowers

20150609-135358.jpgand circles

20150609-135420.jpgNow to decide on the vine, as there’s not enough of this Denise Schmidt stripe and as it’s so old I doubt I’ll find it anywhere

20150609-135630.jpgbut I’ll let my fingers do the walking and see what happens!

    I spied the word kettle in the pattern in the background! How appropriate when you were on a visit to see them. Love all your work by the way and your choice of colours are always so yummy.
