Repeating Traditions

Bundles of threads. D.H. is preparing for a trip to Mongolia. I prepared some embroidery cotton and needles as small gifts.Assembling these small parcels reminded me of the Rajah Quilt.

I just realised I hadn't said thank you for showing my Beatles Quilt on your blog - Thank You! I'm curious about your husband going to Mongolia, it must be a fascinating place. Thread as a gift is such a wonderful idea, imagine the beautiful things it will be made with it.
