This is my very of a Chatelaine - a Catelaine! I made it way back in 1999 for a Chatelaine - sorry Catelaine - for a challenge for the Southern Cross Quilters (a great Australsian on - line quilt group) retreat in 1999 in Hobart, Tasmania. I was very nervous, as it was the first challenge I had ever taken part in. Of course a beautiful, intricately made Chatelaine won, but no-one thought mine was dreadful, and I have gone on to win a challenge or two over the years.
I tried to include the whole Catelaine in this photo. We were obliged to use the Southern Cross Quilters logo on our entry. I managed it twice, inckuding the little cat's dress (look at her carefully - much more will be revealed later). As you can see there are many little catpockets for sewing implements. It is actually quite useful!
Bye for now,
On a beautiful warm autumn day in Melbourne, Australia
