This long weekend saw Gaskill Street’s windows laced with patchwork quilts, including a very cute little display in Aligned. Our own window had a beautiful story to go with the decorations…”Once upon a time there was a girl whose favourite colour was pink. She giggled a lot and loved getting dressed up. Her mum made her two pink patchwork bedspreads for her bedroom. When all the sewing for the pattern was finished there were four pattered squares left over so her mum made a matching tablecloth for her bedside table. The little girl loved her bedspreads and proudly showed them to her cabbage patch doll, Ebba Olive and her teddy bears. Ebba Olive had a wonderful view of the bedroom from the pram she sat in. The pram had belonged to the little girl’s grandmother and had been passed down through the family. For a special occasion the girl’s mum made her a smocked dress. The dress pattern came from Smocking and Embroidery, Issue 22, Spring 1991. The little girl loved her new dress and giggled and giggled. Today, that little girl is 32 years old, married, and a mother herself to two boys.” To see the story come to life come and check out the little girl’s bedroom at the window of the Phoenix Office before it’s packed away once more!
