Quilt for All Season

I always admire Paula Vaughan painting works which has been adapted into cross stitch pattern under the publication of Leisure Arts. Her romantic painting imaged always captured my heart. Among my stitchers friend, kak ros is known to stitched many of Paula V cross stitch pattern.


All of Paula V collection usually detailed about the romantic and sweet victorian life scene inside or outside of the home such as bedroom, patio, garden and living room. I like her painting featuring a lovely wedding gown or dress, and quilting works.


I have bought for myself one of her book called quilt for all season featuring a collection of 12 cross stitch designs celebrating the Patchwork Quilt. All of the design are sweet and makes me feel that I want to stitch them all...greedy me *wink*


When I read at KakDee blog entry that she had started the Paula V quilt of all season cross stitch pattern for the month of January, suddenly the feeling of *menjeles* say hello to me..ha ha ha (mulalah tu) ..I rummaged my "stash" cabinet and found *FEW*..oh my *wink*, nicely folded (UFO) of the Paula V pattern which I had done half way on most of the pattern. Suddenly, I gained the motivation to resume the UFO..*sigh* oops !..not until I finished the few order from my close friends before they got mad at me for making them waiting for so long..*sigh*


Other than cross stitch, Some of Paula V quilt design has been adapted into quilt project. I bought Paula V romance with quilt book from Ebay (like I have so many free time to do it *wink*) since it was so expensive here. Don't know when to start the quilting project but I have seen one nice lady is doing the below pattern at Quilt Gallery..its beautiful..and it was 70% handstitch *sigh* by her.


Kakdee and shima keep up your wonderful progress as an inspiration for me to resume my UFO project.

Till next entry, take care ya..oxox..
