OK. So I've decided. Because it's winter and cold. And because they're cozy and I'm nice. Every Wednesday I'm going to send you a quilt. Well no. Not literally. Obviously. Not an actual quilt in the post. But a very happy photo of one. (If you want a real life actual one they are available to have as your very own) (I have one called "mental block" and it's been a great support to me on my sofa lo these many years.) Anyway, they are works of art all of them. Not all frilly and old ladyish.They're bright and cool and they each have most excellent names. Plus they make you happy to behold. (They're made by my uber brilliant lovely fantabulous friend Denyse.) So here's the first one ... "There Goes The Neighborhood" Quilt by Denyse Schmidt. More here
