 I am quite excited about a workshop I am going to in a few weeks
so I am unpicking....

 I am preserving the darns,

and the holes.

I stay away from swaps altogether because this one flopped. 
I carefully picked out some precious vintage fabrics, 
paid a small fortune for postage
and then
But this time I went myself, 
face to face with the lovely Sophie

I swapped my first tea cosy for these beautiful bowls! 
Three of them! 
I am so rapt!

I made soup today so I could use them for the first time

French lentil and onion soup (from "The Age" August7)
I finished another tea cosy this morning.

This "trip around the world" seems to be taking a lot longer than my last trip

but I'm getting there.

I have just

 finished it but 
I don't have a name for this quilt.
Any suggestions?
The back.

Up close.
With a friend....

I quite like the idea that you can be anonymous
when blogging
but I was really pleased to meet this lady

and buy some of her bowls.
I think they go with my quilts.
