It was like christmas had come early today when I saw my post. Amongst the bills was the most beautiful textile postcard produced by Lorna. Hope she likes the postcard I made and sent her.

This open studio may be coming to a close , but I am still busy getting ready for an exhibition in Northamptonshire. I have been looking through my box of uncompleted work, one of which is a quilt which I must consider finishing.

While cruising through the Quilting Gallery blogs recently and was stopped in my tracks by this beauty, a scrappy wall hanging that looks like oodles of fun to make. Well, it turns out I'm not the only one who feels this way. Due to many requests, Cherry House Quilts is hosting a Quilt Along so we can learn how she made this. I'm so excited!
The supplies list will likely be publicized this weekend. Go to… Continue

I like the classes that Barbara at Joggles.com offers, and Shanon Boggon is one of my favourite tutors. So when I read that Sharon was doing Silk Embroidery, I just couldn't say no.
Lesson one was easy, thank heavens, as it's getting busy in this household now, preparing to go home, nice and simple detatched chain stitches, stem stitch and leaf stitch. The colours recommended (as they are daisy's) was yellow, but I have only maves, so here is my piece. I like it, delicate spray of… Continue

Taking the plunge and have joined TAST [Take a Stitch Tuesday] I have been thinking about creating a personal stitch dictionary for some time and I thought this would be a good way to get started.

I have a starting problem. I start too many projects. I was hoping this would be the year that I began to focus on finishing up more of what I have started.

The focus plan started in January last until May. In May I tried a shorter list. June added 4 new starts to the list.
July is brand… Continue
