I have renamed the blog "Benta's Blog" as I am beginning to lose hope that I will ever get SLIKstitches back, and SLIKtemporary was chosen in a fit of pique! I think the address will have to stay though, as I'm not taking the risk of messing with that again!
I have stitched the (hopefully) last block for the texture quilt, but no photo yet. It is a mosaic type, raw edge applique, so needs to go through the wash and tumble drier before it looks right.
I have done some repairs on some silk and velvet pillow cases from Laura Ashley. They had been marked down as waste as the silk had frayed at the seams, and the caretaker at school's daughter had been able to get them for her mum for free.
I had some pleated fabric in the right sort of colour, so added a strip to each pillowcase.
Very satisfying to do!
