Lovely Kits.

Posted on | July 20, 2012 | 8 Comments

At the last craft show in March I purchased several Marg Low kits. This Winter weather has given me the perfect excuse to make a start on them.

This one that I have completed is Festive Trinkets.

Before.

And after.

I haven’t added the hanging cord yet as I am debating maybe sewing¬† a small ring to the back instead for hanging.

The heart is approx. 8 inches in height.

I always like the way Marg uses the Theodora Cleave buttons in her work. I have several more kits to enjoy.

I have also been making progress on the kaleidoscope quilt with most of the sashing completed. It is nearly ready to go together.

I am hoping to work on this quilt top over the weekend.

 

One of the places we enjoyed going to in Philadelphia on several occasions was the Reading Terminal Market. Lots of lovely fresh produce and a huge variety of places to eat.  It was always busy.

With very little difficulty we managed to sample quite a lot of the foods.

But my favourite stand had all these beautiful flowers.
