More

I just love the subtle colours. So many Quilts that you find in magazines look too perfect too shiny and over done. All these quilts are made using scraps of fabric and all are handsewn.




Marche has many of her quilts hung on the wall like tapestries.Oh joy and rapture!

Such a talented lady - if she weren't so lovely it would be easy to not like her much!! So generous with her time and experience. I have a long way to go to catch up with her and work does get in the way so !

Ohooo it is lovely, I think patchwork is proving very popular. I am really enjoying the one I am making for my little girls attic bedroom.

Is Marche one of the Pickering Patches? I was looking at some of their work at the Beck Isle Museum Quilt exhibition a few weeks ago, some beautiful work (just like Marche's).

Oh my goodness - I have found your lovely blog and the shop from Henhouse's blog. I guessed she was going to Pickering. I live in Northallerton and have never yet made it to the Vintage War Weekend how disgusting is that considering how much Alan and I are into the 30's and 40's. I seem to think I saw your shop in a magazine article somewhere so I knew you were there. We aredoing up our downsized 30's semi and it is taking longer than we thought so day trips have been a bit thin on the ground - I will however putPickering to the top of my list. I also visit my friend in Cropton Forest when I am over there. Have you been to Beadlam Grange? I run the County Council website for Local Food and they are one of our members. I have adde you to my sidebar and will be reading with glee someone who has a blog and a life so close to me!! You might like the stuff that Marmalade Rose makes she is on my sidebar and lives in Hawes. Bye for now - PS I need one of the blanket pieces that has been embroidered - honestly I need to sit with it on my knee gazing at it in wonder...............

I have just found you via Hen. What lovely treasures you have. How can I find out when the vintage weekend is next year? I would like to plan to visit it.

So pleased to have found your pretty blog. I share you passion for making and all things vintage, having lived that way all my life...
Like Alchamillamolly above, I am in love with the embroidered blanket samples...and I have travelled back through your archives and adore the handmade anemone corsages...I have a friend who would love one.

Warm wishes,
Niki

Thank you very much for the plastic multi coloured woven basket which I received today. I am very pleased with it!
