Colours in India.

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.

Alice Isabella goes to the quilt show – read it to your Grandies.

She has been waiting a very long time to go and she was really, really excited.
She has her bags full of interesting things… her clothes, magazines in case she gets bored, and 20 cheese sandwiches wrapped in brown paper just in case she gets hungry or just in case no one feeds her or – just in case.

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 …
