Balkan books

2 of my new books arrived today. It was good to read about some of the textiles that I bought in Albania and Turkey last year. I would love to return to the Museum of Macedonia that I visited in Skopje. I am really inspired to start my new piece for the Festival of Quilts in August. I have an Istanbul piece that needs finishing and loads of other committments of pieces of work to start and finish so am not sure whether I will get it finished in time.
Some of my 2009 journal quilts are going on show at Sewing for Pleasure in Birmingham in March
