Starting to stitch more pears.

I have sewn the pears onto the fabric and have started to do a bit of stitching onto the piece as well.  It makes for a lovely quiet evening activity and if the fire is on then the cat is generally pretty content to lay by the fire where it's warm.  No competition for knee space that way!!
This is quite similar to the pear quilt that I prepared earlier but I have used a different version of the pears this time.  I had some extra fabric that I had previously dyed and printed with soy wax so I thought I'd do another version.  The extra practice is great and I learn something new every time!
The Christmas festivities are over and there is nothing but quiet space before me for a few days.  Lovely.
I'll be back.....

  1. Ooh, Marny! The colours are so rich, and the hand stitching really does create a completely new layer of texture. I can't wait to see the whole quilt! Enjoy your quiet days - they are so precious.
