I just have time for a short blog today, and these images were from a trip to Dilli Haat craft market in Delhi two days ago. I go there each year and its a good way to see products from all over India in one place. Sure, its a little commercial, but I enjoy the experience and I often buy a small piece of precious fabric. However, this art piece is 10 foot X 4 ft six inches, and now it’s mine. It’s hand embroidered Kantha on silk.
The Quilt Show. Alice Isabella decided to walk to the quilt show. She tucked her big bag full of quilting ‘stuff’ under her arm and began the walk down the street. There were a lot of people walking in this direction and that. Their feet made loud noises on the pavement. She passed a big line of bright yellow taxis.

For a few years I had a friend called Alice Isabella and she lives in my note book. She became quite famous a while ago and even had her own blog, but it got a bit too intensive to fit in a story about her adventures each day. Tilly was a bit worried that I was sharing her ‘own’ Grandma story so I wrote them just for her, but I’ve had a few requests lately asking me ‘what happened to Alice’? Tilly has just lost her special friend, Jack, the Jack Russell,he is part of this story, he died on Monday. So Miss Tilly this if for you and now you are 9 I don’t think you will mind me sharing this story with all our friends. What’s happened to Alice? So here is an Alice Isabella story. Its for Children and Quilters. There is always …
