    My new Blog

    Hi folks, I haven't been on here recently. Just wanted to let you know that I have started a blog to showcase some antique Welsh and Durham quilts. You can find it at:

    http://welshquilts.blogspot.com

    If you're in to old quilts and quilt history you might find it interesting.

    Many thanks

    Pippa

      Pippa,
      I have to tell you I absolutely loved your blog. The whole clothes made my mouth water with envy. Well, I have to admit I am drinking chilled white wine in hot weather while looking, but that has nothing to do with it. I love your blog and will continue to follow you. Keep up the good work. Cheryl
