...not literally perhaps, but almost.
|Afternoon Tea with May Morris by Michele Hill|
I have known Michele for quite some time and she is one amazing lady! A talented quilter and William Morris devotee, not only has she now produced tree books of beautiful applique and quilt designs inspired by the Morris & Co legacy, she has lead tours through the UK and is at the forefront of promoting the amazing Morris & Co collection (the biggest outside the UK) housed the Art Gallery of South Australia. If you ever want to know more about William Morris or his daughter May, just ask Michele!

As an embroiderer, I am rather excited that this latest book focuses on May, William's daughter.

I am not a quilter or patchwork by any stretch of the imagination, but the way Michele puts her designs together is just fabulous and the projects in this collection are all quite manageable in size - besides, the patterns could very, very easily be used as.......embroidery patterns.
Enjoy your week,
