Anything that creates a wonderful memory of my Nana is a joy.
This new stitchery was designed in honour of her and yesterday I dug through my many drawers of rescued op-shop frames for one that would resepectfuly house the "Nana's Jug in Patchwork" block for display in our home.
A square blue frame waved it's invisible arms until I took notice, and when all is said and one, I think it's perfect!
I'm seriously in love with the Lecien fabrics used in the applique bricks and patchwork borders too.
"Retro 30's Child Smile" should be in fabric stores at the end of May...
This afternoon I'll be using more of the same fabrics to finish another new design as a table runner.
Once it's pieced and quilted I can add little seed beads to the centre of the flowers...
(patterns will be here inside the May Stitchery Club or available as single purchase downloads on May 18th from my shop)
I think you'll see more Nana inspired projects from me in the future.
They simply make me smile.
Just out of curiosity, what things from the past stir warm memories inside your heart?
