Brilliant day filming – despite the damp English weather; we got to see the Jane Austen Coverlet which was sewn by Jane and her mother and sister and they used the EPP method;
the Community sewing Project organised by Lucy Bailey, (that Valerie and she are standing in front of) reimagines the Jane Austen quilt and commemorates her life and legacy, and the Admiral’s Quilt was created with the EPP blocks left over and is on the approppriate bed in the house, is quite stunning.
Keep an eye open for the release date!
Dave, Matt and Valerie enjoy a bit of light relief at the end of the day with the help of the dressing up box that’s in the kitchen of the house/museum
