Normal shambles has been restored

A few days ago I showed you the unnaturally clean and tidy state of my workroom –Annette's table-topper in tidy workroom bedroom end of workroom when I’d finished the table-topper for Annette.  It didn’t last! Alas, I have started a new scrap quilt, with consequent renaissant shambles! IMG_1065 IMG_1066 IMG_1067 IMG_1068 IMG_1069 26.1.16

I have been looking for a recipient of the recent big scrappy quilt.   Elise, the daughter of my lovely helper Charline has just moved into her first house so I was happy to give it to her.

  1. I will always take a quilt off you!

    The first pair of oven gloves you quilted for me are still my favourite of the others I’ve had since. We all use our quilts on a daily basis (weather permitting, which it usually is).

  4. I have a frame around my car’s license plate that says “creative minds are never tidy”. I start out tidy at the beginning of a project but during the process, I keep the door closed until the project is done. Your new quilt project is beautiful already. Looks a little over my head but I love the look. How sweet to give the scrappy quilt to someone needing fresh energy in their new home. Looking forward to seeing the new one complete.

  6. What a lovely gift for the new home. She will treasure it I am sure. I call your shambles, organized chaos! And a necessity to the creative soul!

    That really doesn’t look much like a shambles .. my room looks far worse than that when I start sowing costumes .. can’t imagine what it’d be if I quilted btw the centre piece looks interesting, love the colours.

    That’s not a shambles, that’s a work in progress. If you don’t HAVE to put things somewhere else, it’s not a mess, it’s simply leaving things in place till the next time you can pick them up again. The only place I try to keep clear is my cutting table; nothing so frustrating as not being able to lay fabric out to cut it because there’s a litter of bits. What a lovely housewarming present you’ve given!


  9. Your new quilt is a work of art! I would love to see a photograph again, after it has been cherished and worn down a bit at the edges, like all good quilts. Lucky lady to be on the receiving end.
