So what have you done in March? I hear you ask. Well I attended Region 15E Quilters' Guild Regional Day followed by a course with Yvonne Brown, an inspirational teacher and prolific quilter. Below you can see my tidy desk on the course, well it's tidy for me! Then the photo of the workers at the end of the afternoon. I'm the one with very little done and gingerly holding all my little experimental scraps together when all the rest had a quilt block finished. Photo three shows the blocks I made 1/3 completed the next day. It has progressed on since then but I don't have a photo to show you, yet!
I've made several ATCs and Postcards, here are a selection
I went to London to visit my daughter for my birthday she took me to see War Horse. That was a fantastic show, If you haven't seen the stage production do it's amazing. Those who know me will say but your birthday is in February, why a birthday treat in March?Well to tell the truth DD said when do you want to come down? and I said March because there is a stitching show at Olympia and I had never been before. Here are just a few of the goodies I got.
Beautiful fabrics from Burma
Stash laid out on my bed
a little book made by Gilda Baron and some felted pebbles I made at a workshop with Ailish Henderson
Back home and here is a small book I made when playing with some newly acquired artists inks, it really is quite small/
Playing with disperse dyes
Finally my small memory pin cushion which was actually made on Valentines Day in February. I don't think I have shared this with you but I love it.
The image is my Mum, my Gran and my great Gran
I have done other things as well this month because I am working towards an exhibition at Wallington Hall in Northumberland in the summer with the textile group TWYNE. I'll tell you more about that in a later post when the advertising poster is completed. I have finished one item and am planning two more so will have to pull my finger out and get going.
That's all for now. If you are interested have a look at this link on our upcoming Creative Weekend.
