So while I was there yesterday I met Karen from The Stitching Post who are located in Katoomba in the beautiful Blue Mountains. I came across Karen via a phone call about Nancy Halvorsen's Cider Mill Road fabric, and I quilt I found in an old Australian Patchwork and Quilting Magazine which jumped off the page and said make me. The quilt is Vintage Dresden Roses by Ruth Bucanan. I tell you its not that often that this happens, but this one just jumped off the page. Anyway to cut a long storey short, I have a confession to make......I'm kinda colour blind. Well I can see colours just cant see the tones, what I think goes together doesnt lol....my husband will tell you that. I cant tell the difference between some blues and greens, reds and burgandys, creams browns the list is endless lol. When I cross stitch if I buy the kits with the cotton just mushed together, I throw it out and get the skeins with the numbers on it so I know what is what. I always have to make sure that the design has the DMC numbers on it to get the cotton. If its obvious then I can see it but if its just a shade of two different they look the same to me. So after telling Karen this she wonderfully put a kit for it together, I told her that I liked the look of that fabric, and could she please work it out :)
So this is what I got
