fabric friday



In between rain storms (so much for the heatwave!) I am painting up pieces for fabric kits which will be available at The Festival of Quilts :D
 ..and Gill, I hope to see you there because you have won the tickets in my giveaway!

Wishing you all a creative weekend.

working (very hard) wednesday!


Well it is that time of year again and I am running around like a headless chicken as I prepare for the Festival of Quilts. 
I have been working on some new pieces to display in my booth such as the piece above...


...plus I am working on some new designs that I hope to have ready for the show.


In true grasshopper fashion I am jumping form one project to the next.


This is something I started on this morning!
Hoping to get all of these wrapped up by the end of the week so that I can really crack on with the fabric painting.
There will probably be a few more frantic posts such as this one between The Festival of Quilts so please bare with me...

Thanks for visiting!

working wednesday

Cornwall

I am playing catch up this week as at the weekend it was time to collect my daughter from university in Cornwall. It wasn't all hard work as an invitation from a dear friend meant we also got to spend some time in Prussia Cove.

Cornwall

So much to inspire and delight!
...and talking of being inspired and delighted :D... yesterday one of my stitched seascapes was included in this Etsy Treasury.

Even if you are not in the market to buy there is a lot to be inspired by here. Take a look!

working wednesday

Quilt Routes

Now matter what needs to be done my day always starts with a walk. I don't make it down to the beach as often as I would like these days as old Rosie dog is showing her age and finds it a struggle. Yesterday I couldn't resist though and it was slow progress but we made it .

I would like to call this colour coincidence as it sounds nice but, I think it has more to do with how our eye is drawn to colours.  After stitching this painted background on Sunday, my eye was drawn to photograph this on my walk on Monday morning.


This grows prolifically around here at this time of year. It has obviously working its way into my subconscious without me realizing.

A yahoo group that I belong to was full of mirth about this post from The Sewing Lawyer yesterday.
A long read but very amusing.

Thanks for being here!
