Apparently, in the “Olden Days”, women would needlepoint or hand embroider bed sheets for summer quilts. My sister received one such thing from my mother although she can’t remember if my Mom said it was stitched by my paternal or maternal grandmother. Sue, my sister, asked if I wanted it and could do anything with it.
Oh, yes! Today, it was loaded on The Rack and I’ve long-arm machined it into magnificent beauty– yes, it was beautiful before but it was THIN! It was just a sheet!! Well, now it’s a quilt and quite a lovely quilt at that!
Then, Brian and I watched more TopGears which is why I sound like Jeremy Clarkson in my head as I describe this to you.
