Looking through my computer I realised that I hadn’t posted a picture on my blog of my latest Journal Quilt, so here it is.
I had been doing some research into Estonian textiles with a view to going back there some time, and just wanted to make a small piece
I was going to keep my Pomegranate Quilts hidden from view until after my various exhibitions this Spring but as I am teaching how to make them in Veldhoven in May it would be better to show them now to try to encourage people to book on the class
I spent a lot of time a few months ago writing articles for various magazines. They are finally being published. The article above has appeared in the latest Sewing World Magazine. I’m pleased with the pictures.
Here are some images of leaflets for some of the shows coming up soon.
My flowers are on the front page, and these are my Indian Ladies.
I have a piece in Hidden Histories and my exhibition will be at london and at Birmingham!
Here is my latest “Stitched” Quilt. It is based on textiles seen in the museum in Leksand Dalarna Sweden.
For some strange reason I am having difficulty in uploading a couple of other finished pieces. Will try again tomorrow
The last couple of weeks have felt really hard – not really sure why but I seem to have been taking 2 steps forward 1 back. My computer is broken, in for repair now, my glasses broke yesterday and it goes on. So this morning I received an email to say one of my Indian Ladies has been accepted into the Living Colour Exhibition – have a look at the Facebook page and website
There were 177 entries and only 32 accepted and it will travel around Australia and New Zealand.
With no computer I can’t even find a photo of my entry!
Once I have my computer back I will post an image.
It,s been a good day at the show in Manchester today but I am so so cold. My stand was in an almighty draft. Lets hope for a warmer day tomorrow. I have posted photos of my stand on Facebook
I am a member of another International group, with members from the UK, France, USA, Belgium, Holland and Russia. It is early days for the group but we have a blog spot and there are some good quilts on show so far.
Here is the first finished piece for the group. It is based on textiles seen in a shop in Delhi. It is a practice piece for a larger one that i am doing but it isn’t finished yet
I finished another piece this week, for an exhibition. It’s an embroidery exhibition so it has more embroidery on it than I usually do, but I did cheat by using the ready stitched shisha glass.
It’s been a colourful week! I needed a bit of colour this week – tax form completed – I just have to press that final button – Submit! Phew!
Here is my new Voyage Quilt.
It is painted with added applique.
Given me lots of ideas for the next quilt.
I just wasn’t happy with the grey quilt, so I’ve done another one today. This new approach will give me something to work at and keep me going for the rest of the year. I have changed my mind and I will do the Earth People theme now. I quite often change my mind at the beginning of the year.
I started painting the face
Here is the finished quilt (not the best photo) and I am much happier.
I have a new book – no time to look at it yet but I liked the graphics and I love her quilts
I have been thinking today what I should display when I have a demonstrator stand at Event City in Manchester. Here is the leaflet, (with my name on)
I just wanted to make a few things, other than quilts, so made a few scissor cases to sell. Lets hope they sell, and how much do I charge for them?
Tomorrow I’ll take a better photo of my new quilt
