Look what happens when I go skiing .............
OK, hands up everyone who thought they were going to see a picture of me with a leg in plaster? No, the sort of skiing I do is Spending the Kids' Inheritance! (Why anyone should want to do the other sort, with all that horrid snow and falling over and so on is totally beyond me, but this sort is fun.) As you all know, I collected my new frame from Martha who makes the New English Quilter (you can see it here ), last week. I could not set it up straight away, but we put it up at the weekend, since when Bertha and I have done 3 quilts on it.
The beauty of this frame is that it is all handmade, and they will happily customise it to your own requirements. Being tall, I wanted mine to be a bit higher than average. Being downright fussy, I also wanted to be able to set it up at a length of 6ft, 8ft or 10ft. Being awkward, I use a PCQuilter, so I needed very specific distances between the runners. Being very flexible, they were happy to do all this for me.
Here's another view of it. Doesn't Bertha look comfortable on her new perch?
