A promise I made you, so tell you I must, but first you must promise, never to reveal it to another living soul. For you see it was purely by chance it happened, and it should never have been revealed.
There was something in the air you see, and she was so enjoying the day, the sun was shining and the bluebells were out. She loves bluebells so, they are her most favourite flower in the world, even if they are not the colour of her dress. Her dress is not red, and not orange, but a mix of the two. If you imagine the most beautiful sunset of all, rich and magnificent, that is the colour of her dress. There are no two dresses the same colour, there are reds, blues yellows, greens, every colour imaginable and in every shade, and many more colours you have never seen, and could never imagine. But hers is the most beautiful of all.
She was in amongst the trees, examining a magical creature never seen by humans, and it started to rain, twas the rain that caught her out. Have you ever wondered why you never see fairies? It is because they can change. Not like a chameleon, so they just blend in with the background, they become translucent too, and you only see them, if they let you.
Her dress had not quite faded, and she was not quite translucent and her image was captured forever, in Bluebell Woods.
It is usually only small children who see fairies, they start to leave them when the are five, so by the time they are seven, they think it only a story from a book. But some children never forget, that is why seven is a magical number. And that Dear Friends is the real reason I can never part with the quilt, I must forever guard the secret, until there is none left to remember, they saw the fairy, in Bluebell Woods.
Do you remember seeing fairies?
I did think someone would have guessed the secret, for the clue was in Mondays introduction post. My grateful thanks to Karen, from kaHolly, for it was she who commented and stimulated my long forgotten childhood memory, of when I could see fairies.
But I can't do a post without showing you something new, especially this week. But I haven't done any sewing for two days now, so, I delved into a UFO box, and see what I found.
Unfinished Christmas coasters!!! Yes I know it is only June and I haven't had my summer holiday yet either, but I had to show you something. What else?
More coasters. Russian dolls, I just reduced the pattern.
Ok, this is the last, the black and white mug rugs need some appliqué added but I hadn't decided what. Maybe I should leave the box out, that one even has the binding clips attached, it just needs hand sewing. Yes, I always hand sew, I can honestly say I have never machined my binding. Partly of course because I can't sew straight, but that's beside the point.
Remember, next week is the second week on the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, so I hope you will support them as you have supported me. These are the lovely new bloggers from my hive, Miss Bee Hivin'.

I hope you have all enjoyed this week as much as I have, but next week I will be back to posting once and sometimes twice a week, before you get totally bored of me. So what will I do? Catch up with my email replies for starters, and go visiting, and catch up with all my blogging stuff I haven't had time to do this week. Clean my house, iron the clothes, and clear the lounge ready for the new floor being laid on Tuesday. I might even tidy and clean my sewing room, no, it's not a studio, you have to be a designer to have one of those, and I'm just Kate, a girl (and I use the term very loosely) who quilts.
