I will post something about Gartmore soon but wanted to give a quick update. My good friend Helen has recently taken up quilting. If you follow my knitting group blog you'll already know this. The quilted book bag cover is a particular favourite and has been much admired by the rest of us. In fact one or two people have been giving her commissions for them. Over the last month or so I have been loaning her books and as a thank you she made me one of my very own. You have no idea how excited I was about this. She even decorated it with some of the sewing machines fancier stitches.
