I had a lovely e-mail the other day from a lady called Gloria from Australia.
She'd come across my Merry Mouse stitcheries while looking at some of the old posts on my blog.
She asked me for details of the publisher etc, and let me know that she had managed to find one of the books on e-bay.
So I have finally started.
And you know how much I love to start things!
Finishing is another matter altogether.
They are from the Merry Mouse series of Patterns by Pat and Gloria, published by Doubleday in the early 1980s.
Little Chicken Feather (Annie Downs).
I finally feel like I have enough quilts in my life.
But I will finish the three I have on the go.
It will be the very first thing in my Grandma stash.
Not that I am expecting to be a Grandma for a long time yet.
But this quilt will be so special, because these stitcheries have such a story attached to the making of them.
They could really only be given to a Grandchild now.
