Beautiful, I love how the hand pump in the window fits the picture. Somtimes simple is best. Cant wait to see it finished.

So simple Lucy and so beautiful. I love the photographs you take in this area of your home, the beige curtains and cream cabinet, and the chair!!

Una said...

So, so pretty! There is nothing like the simplicity - always striking. The light in your pictures is wonderful. Good to have it back, huh?

Adorable!

Beautiful. Your quilts are so often what the Japanese would call wabi sabi, filled with a quieter, older, gentler, beauty. I love all your posts and all your lovely photos!

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

But I like your bright quilts too! The purple one and the Trip Around the World ones, especially.

What can I say that others haven't said? This little quilt is simple, yet striking. There is a very special quality to your quilts and your photos Lucy. Both are always lovely.

Lucy, each of your photos is a work of art in itself. You have a wonderful eye for composition. The picture with the chair is breath-taking.

Hello Lucy!...thank you for visiting my blog...you asked about the Summer pinkeep that I made...it was made from a pattern by Jenny of Country Rustic Primitives and yes it was made with DMC floss...the colors used are 924, 3011, 3777, and 3799...the quilt you are making is lovely!

take care!

Hi Lucy
Love pink and brown quilts - your trip around the world is looking very nice. Also saw your tulip quilt in an earlier post. It's wonderful! Is it old or newly made? I just posted about my 1930's/40's quilt top with a similar string pieced tulip. cheers K

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...
