winter quilt - work in progress.

 I am continuing to work on the Winter Quilt.
 Putting it under the machine embroidery needle to decorate some seams,
 adding a few little birds that you have to hunt to find.
Putting some running stitches in the borders to even out some wrinkles. It will still have plenty of those wrinkles but hey haven't we all? Really like the texture that has developed. I am taking it with me to Cheltenham today because it is my turn at the Gallery at 51 ( we all do some stewarding each) hope to be able to get some more stitches in those borders.

    1. Thank you Mo, it is a work that has slowly evolved over several years and seems to have taken on the patina of all those thoughts and time.
