Edwina's Post




Hello, it's all pictures today! This post is for Edwina who has asked about the Sunflower Farm quilt several times. Edwina, I took some photo's outside this morning in full sunlight so they haven't come 0out terribly well, but have added some older ones of folded quilt and selected motifs. I hope you enjoy them!






                                           I wish I knew how to make photo mosaics!





The full length ones I took really did not come out very well in the sunshine, so have included these quarter shots with a bit more detail visible.







                                   There you go - don't say I never do anything for you!

    2. Yes I am sorry not to be reciprocating with blog posts. I mostly put up images on the Redbubble website (as jayview) if you want a sense of where I'm coming from. I used to make simple Liberty print hand stitched quilts and knit Nordic ski jumpers, but now mostly take photos and get postcards made from them. Jean

    3. No criticism intended for those who can't answer comments! I have the time AND I have the manageable numbers of comments to be able to respond, which is why I do it, but I never mind if other bloggers - who have massive comments! - don't reply, they often comment so we keep in touch that way. It is just lovely to meet a new reader, thank you!

  10. First of all, "Thank you Edwina for your request". Our Lynne is an amazing talent and I don't think she even realizes how very special her work is.
    Lynne, I hope that you are not selling this quilt, because I think it should become a family heirloom. It is so interesting, I could look at all the details for hours. It is so bright and cheerful, it put a smile on my face and I have been in so much pain with my back, that I have not been smiling today. It looks so soft and cozy, I could curl up in that quilt and take a nap . . . the kind of nap that anyone that disturbed my dreams would me in danger of bodily harm. It is truly a work of art and you dear sweet Lynne make magic out of your stitchery.
    You are an extraordinaire artist . . . and if it were not for blogging I would never know that, or be able to enjoy your work. That's another star in the cap of whoever came up with blogging.
    I'm stopping here, because I don't want to give you the big head, but if I had a tenth of your talent I would be thinking that I was pretty darn special:)

    1. Dear, Dear Connie! Your comments always make me blush, then smile. I totally agree about how blogging has given all of us something very special - 'pen-friendships' across the globe, as I think of the people all over the world I know through blogs and Facebook. There is a lot that is wrong about on-line life but there is also so much good and heart-warming that we share.
      I feel exactly the same about that quilt, and its sister quilt with the birds and baskets, also a flannel quilt; so warm and cosy both the stitch and to wrap oneself up in!
      I don't have any illusions about about my talent, but I do think I'm developing my own style, and am loving the way the embroidery is adding an extra dimension to my applique. Your own talents, Connie, always amaze me, and I am enjoying your posts from your new home, so exciting to see what you are gradually working your way round.
      Now I must go, I have three wool cushion fronts which are finished and need making up - not my favourite part! Thank you again Connie, I hope you are managing that back pain, which can so drag one down, love to you, Lynnexx
