Hi Heather, I’m attempting to catch up on podcast and just listening to this episode. Your comment about the feelings expirenced upon returning to the old home reminded me of this kindhearted animation that I saw recently https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnWGXIumMNg . Enjoy
Thank you so much for that link! What a sweet animation that is—and very appropriate. (And what a GORGEOUS watercolor sketch of the Bendigo Cemetery! I wish I could do trees like you!)
Hi Heather, regarding your quilt, the following link may be of use–http://www.cci-icc.gc.ca/resources-ressources/ccinotesicc/13-10-eng.aspx . Earlier in the year I stabilised tears in a soft sculpture for the art gallery I work at and found this reference useful. Totally agree with you about not using fusible bonding web. I know your quilt isn’t a museum piece, but I do like the idea of any repairs being reversible and in keeping with the integrity of the object. Hope that you get to enjoy using your quilt for many years to come!
Jennifer–that web page is a fantastic resource! Thank you! I’m going to point people to it next episode, too! I’ve got my cotton thread and my very soft cotton fabric (from the oooollllldddd sheet) so I think that’s a good start. I’m going to try that couching stitch today and see how it goes. I decided I could at least start by basting a piece of fabric in place behind that hideous tear and now I have a better idea of how to secure the frayed edges… and mend ALL the holes that are starting up or well-on-their-way.
On the quilting and your needles–Have you tried bees wax? I’m sure you have. I heard somewhere (YEARS ago) the quilting needles were prewaxed. Never verified and could be wrong. I know also there is quilt preservation services, wonder if they teach classes on that somewhere…
I’m still crying about not getting to meet you THIS TIME at Stitches East. (SNIFF!)
The Rembrandt Flashmob thing was awesome, might remind others that you may want to turn down the volume on your computer, if Heather can be heard, the YouTube Video will blast.
I’m so excited about everyone participating in Sherlock. I think the Study in Scarlet has been done so many times, possibly because it was the first where Sherlock and Holmes meet, even on the tv series ‘Elementary’ reading it will seem very, VERY familiar.
I’m having this conversation with you as the episode plays, now that we are to the chapters, I will read along and working at my crocheting. Happy Saturday! ~tammy
