Following my trip to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC recently, I have a new helper.
According to the instructions that came with her from The Quilters’ Trading Post, her name is Dawn.
I’m not sure about that, because so far she has been too shy to say anything.
Anyway, as you can see, she is making herself jolly useful around the sewing room and the studio, holding bits and bobs, and being a nice cheerful presence.
Her conical body is really sturdy, but it took rather more rice (topped up with lentils) than I had anticipated. Must remember to buy some more.
You can also see my new rack for spools of thread: another treasure from the same foraging trip.
