Now for the quilts. My mom and I went to a quilt show in Hampton yesterday and it was overwhelming. I love quilts, but other than the doll quilt I made when I was eleven or twelve, I've never made any. Even when I did a lot of sewing, I never got up the nerve to tackle quilting. It just seems so daunting to me. But I love looking at them, and it turns out, so does my mom. We had a lovely "girls" day out together. I wish I had taken more photos, but here are the ones I did manage to get.
This is Santas Around the World.
This one was amazing, so detailed, like a painting. The card said the quilter modeled it from a jigsaw puzzle.
This one seemed very Colonial looking to me.
My mom liked this one a lot.
And another Christmas one, this one on a black background, which seemed unusual but was quite striking.
I'm in the middle of an Elizabeth Gaskell marathon right now. I watched North and South last week, Wives and Daughters over the weekend, and now I'm on the Cranford series. I even skipped most of the Oscars to watch episode one of the Cranfords! It's odd, but when Cranford first aired on Masterpiece, I didn't love it, and now, I'm totally addicted. At least I'm making fantastic progress on the baby blanket while I watch. At this rate, I'll probably finish it by tomorrow night. Hope you had a lovely Monday!
