"Inside my head"

In this magazine that I got from Darlene I recognized a quilt I made from this pattern some years ago.

And I looked through my big pile of quilts in the sewingroom and found it. This is one of my favorites and I named it "Inside my head". Because sometimes my head is filled with ideas, and things I like to sew, and it feels like my head is spinning around and around. Do you know that feeling. Wanting to do everything at the same time, but the result is that nothing is accomplished. This quilt is handstitched and handquilted.

Thank you for digging it out of your sewing room to share with us.

May, that is a very beautiful quilt and I will look for it when that magazine arrives in my magazine shop. It will be great to say to my friends that I "know" the quilter!

Far better than the magazine, those colours! Those circles...it scares me to think about sewing them. i love your pincushion and I enjoyed your mail, regards, tracey. Hope your arm is improving,
