The quilts are gorgeous (especially a certain one on page 123). The Checkerboard Medallion on page 63 really caught my eye. Actually most of the quilts in that chapter have.
I have to say that I'm not a huge basket fan. Somehow they don't "do it" for me, but Gwen's are gorgeous to look at.
I haven't had a chance to read it through properly yet. Why is it that when you want to sit down with a cuppa and Gwen for a couple of hours all hell breaks loose and you end up charging round the countryside doing errands.
I've done a bit more on Halloween Houses.
Try as I might, I cannot get the cobweb quilting to show. See if you can see it by clicking on the photos.
On a more serious note (and quite sad actually), at French class yesterday we had to read, translate into English and then discuss in French a letter written by Guy Môquet to his family before he was shot by the Germans. Very very sad.
You can read about Guy Môquet here and a copy of the letter here. Don't click on the last link if your French is not good. The English version can be found here.
I do vaguely remember Mr le President trying to get the Lycées to read this letter out to the students at each rentrée in September, but the teachers refused.
Right- Périgueux beckons. Yet another day gone without reading Gwen!
