Just a few days early but I will be on holiday on the actual day. I think she will get a lot of wear from the dresses as thy will have Christmas in New Zealand with her other grandparents . Two summers.
I will have to get all the beds clear of fabric and put the machine away but to day as the sun is out I must get the grass cut.

When I started to look at tiles from the medieval times I was struck by the patterns that are now used in Patchwork . The tile in the bottom corner of the photo made me think of double wedding ring . The one in the centre of the photo Dresden plate .
What do you think ??
