Not devil worshippers, but lovers of needlework

Here's our shop window this week.  We've gone semi-halloween, which isn't too much of a stretch for us since some of our prints allude to the dark side.  A concerned customer asked me once if we were devil worshippers (she wasn't joking) For her information and everyone else's;
  No, we are not devil worshippers.


- and here's a photo of our window by Sue, a blogger from Melbourne who's massively into patchwork http://thecraftypioneer.com/

Talking of which here's a patchwork quilt by Grandmother Deborah


(see she quilted her name and the date 1988 on it) She died when she was nearly 101 and could remember the sinking of the Titanic, so she was very old when she finished this lovely quilt. If you look closely the pencil marks where she sketched out her pattern are visible.




Its on my bed now with a pair of Lush Designs Centaur pillowcases and a Cottages and Castles duvet cover.
