If you have been a reader here for a l-o-n-g time, you will recall this quilt once made its home on the gate to the backyard. One of my very first attempts at applique made for some fairly lumpy/bumpy motifs. Still I love the quilt - the design, the fabrics, my naive attempt at hand quilting (before I had ever heard of 'big stitch')
While I may not be so proud of this work as to prominently display it in my home, there is MUCH joy in seeing at the portal of the backyard. It is quite faded and I'm okay with that. I just tea dye it every now and again to bring some color to it again. I'm so glad that it is back in the spot where it belongs. Just one more step in making this place seem like 'home'.
Then just because I can, a gratuitous picture of Larkin.
She's lovin' all of this outside time, too.
