Don't get too excited, as it just has one thing there - my Bling Bling Baltimore quilt pattern. Apparently my Legend and Lace website requires major upgrades, or a new website, and I have decided it is now time to move on. It looks like I started this Etsy shop in 2013 and never followed through with it, as it was just hanging there waiting for something from me. So, over time I will start moving my pdf patterns to Etsy. I think it might be easy enough, and will change the link on the side of this Blog as I get them done.
So, now back to what I have been doing over the last several month. I told you that my DH got sick while we were travelling, so that gave me lots of time to sit about and do some hand sewing. I got this quilt finished while sitting about
Susan Smith called Stevie's Garden. I called mine Midnight in the Garden. I was lucky enough to win two ribbons for this at the recent Adelaide Festival of Quilts. One for the applique, and the other for Hand Quilting. Not many people are doing hand quilting these days, so it can be worth the effort.

A few more things that have inspired me this month. the first one is an original image, via Pinterest, of an antique quilt held in the Victoria and Albert museum in England. I actually saw this quilt when the exhibition came to Australia about 5 years ago. I know that Kaffe Fassett has made a reproduction of it, and I have it on my horizon as well.
Barb Vedder, who used some of Kaffe's drawings from his book Museum Quilts, plus original drawings of her own.
It pleases me that I have some inspiration again. I did do a lot of sitting about and thinking, but not doing, so a good step forward!
