Lots of hand embroidery expertly stitched with a single strand of hand-dyed embroidery floss. Just lovely.
I also made an exciting ebay purchase. Can you guess it…(you never will!)
It is old and heavy.
It’s a mangle to go with my new concrete tubs.
How lucky is that? Flo and I plan to use them in the garden to wash out our fabrics after we dye them. We think that it is very cool. Our own little laundry in the back yard. The mangle needs a make over. My Pete will get to it with a can of WD40 to see what he can do. They are very difficult to find. I have been looking out for one for ages. I paid $25.50 for this one….but the postage was $50.00. Oh well, that’s how it goes sometimes.
While I am being all quilty, here is a new version of our cupcake quilt. The original one went to a very good home.
Must go and pack now. I am going to a sleepover at an aquarium with twenty-five ten year olds tonight. Apparently I have to sleep on the floor…
Watch out, I’ll be cranky tomorrow.
