Red and White

Hello everyone.....summer has returned to our little patch this week....and i finished this nautical inspired lucky fish quilt too.....
........i loved sewing this and it was quick to put together though i lingered over the hand quilting and binding.....so it has been a work in progress for quite a long time....
.........it's very soft and snuggly....perfect for chilly beachy august evenings.........
.........the little fish are appliqu├ęd and the template is included in the pattern which is available now in my etsy shop link in sidebar......
........below is a little bit of up cycling......a garden folding plant stand painted and recycled to use as a quilt ladder.....and displaying some red and white quilts this week too.....
......cannot have too many quilts....and cannot have too many red and white ones....must sew another one soon....
..........red and white china always appeals to me too....this is the red and white greengate jug that i love.....
.......last week we bought a new floribunda rose with a delicious perfume.....here it is against the white picket fence.....
.....we also went on a lovely picnic and outing to errdig country house and park in north wales.....
.........where we saw these fascinating red and white dahlias........looking like they had been partly painted....or made from two colours of crepe paper......
.........there were lots of other lovely flower pictures taken too but i'll show you those another time....

 .....today is warm and sunny again and it will soon be time for a cup of tea in the garden......thank you for dropping by dear readers and for the very kind comments you leave...it's always a pleasure to hear from you.......wishing you a happy week ahead......stay well and take care lovelies.......back soon xxxxxxxxxxx

Beautiful. The dahlias are different, quite a nice addition to a garden. You have such a wonderful creative mind, your quilts are always perfect.
