However yesterday I got back to my machine and finished the quilt top for Indie's baby daughter Isobel. Now I need to decide on the borders. I am hoping I have enough of the batik to do a thin border of this and then I need to see what else I have. I will have to buy material for the backing as I have nothing suitable.
Today I went to the Imperial War Museum with my daughter Lucy. Whilst looking through the first and second World War galleries I came across 2 pieces of embroidery. The photos aren't great as they were taken through glass. The first was made by an Auxiliary Territorial Service volunteer and is a beautiful map of the UK.
The second piece was made by a member of the Land Army and is entitled Dig for Victory.
