"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

Thank goodness, I finally finished this kitchen sampler for my sister in law's 60th birthday, which was last month. She is getting it on Mother's Day - this Sunday. She will have my belated birthday pressie to give me as well - fair exchange!

What a lovely present.

I'm amazed at the amount of linen you buy - it's beautiful, but you must have a big house! Do you keep it all ironed and in acid free paper or whatever, I wonder?

Hi Isabelle,
Yes I'm afraid it is an addiction for me. Our house is not really big by some standards (16 squares, compared to most houses around us which average 20 squares and more), but we have four bedrooms, one of which I have claimed for myself to store and display my collection. I hang all the cloths and aprons in the wardrobe, and the smaller items are in drawers in a tallboy/chest of drawers. I always wash and iron everything before I put them away, but I haven't got any acid free paper. I know I should but I just haven't got around to finding any.
