The pattern was in a sorry state too. It had been folded and unfolded so many times that I had taped it but over the years the tape deteriorated, leaving yellow marks on the pattern. This was kept it a plastic document pouch.
I think the reason why it was left was because there are so many different but similar shades of the dark blues and reds in the skirts that I became disoriented. Anyway, roll on 16 years and my Mum asked if the embroidery was still around. It was and she took it on along with the threads. There was only one shade of the dark blue that was needed but the dye lot of that number thread was slightly different but she blended strands of old an new thread to make that less noticeable.
So here it is, The Quitmaker.
