Patience is a Virtue

If so, then Carol is the most virtuous among us. She has been waiting a very long time for this mini quilt, promised almost a year ago now.

Carol loves bright, primary & rainbow colours with black and white, so that's what she's getting! There some fun selvages in here. I think the binding is totally 'her', too. Lately Carol's been on a roll creating mini portrait quilts of her sewing friends. They are so much fun. Visit her blog for a look-see. You're sure to leave with a smile.

I've made several of these before, but this was the first time I had the brainwave (some of us are a little slow.....be patient) to add my label right into the stacked selvages. Clever.

I'm heading to the post office Carol. You won't have to wait much longer!

And as for you lot who are wondering about my subversive stitchery, I'm having second thoughts about sharing. I don't want to offend anyone, or do anything to damage my well-earned sterling reputation (cough, cough). Upon further investigation, it does appear that a reverse look-up on Google translate gives a rather clean version of my Latin stitchery...darnit. I was trying so hard to be naughty. Stay tuned.

This is a fabulous one, and well worth the wait, I'd say. Great idea putting your label right into the stack!

Well gee, I have been checking every hour on the hour for your naughty post and now I'm not going to get it? I already commented on this lovely mini on Flickr. As soon as I saw the binding I thought of Carol. It's perfect for her. And I love your Poppyprint selvage too! Wonderful as always!

How lovely! I'm sure she'll be thrilled. Go on, post your subversive stitching! We're not that prudish!! And forget what Google says, as someone who speaks other languages, I can vouch that Google Translate is wrong 90% of the time!
