First of all, thank you to everyone who left a comment about Bea’s quilt. She was tickled to read them all and is already working on another quilt—she is learning to chain sew charms together using 3 charm packs, one each of Little Apples, Sherbet Pips, and A Walk in the Woods. I tried to take a picture of her at the sewing machine today, but the battery was dead…of course!
Here is another “treasure store” find. I believe she is Tom Kitten’s mother, Mrs. Tabitha Twitchit.
The figurine has a little basket on the back where I keep all my scissors, marking pens, small rulers, and ephemera. I do love all things Beatrix Potter. After all, my first daughter is named Beatrix!
It’s pretty folk artsy and I think made by a student maybe because it has some initials on the bottom scratched into the porcelain.
I have been sewing up a storm and finished up a few quilt tops in the past couple weeks. I bought some basting spray and hope to give that a try to see if it helps speed up the process of getting from a quilt top to actually quilted. That seems to be the big hurdle for me.
