Lots of work

I dont have any pictures to put on my blog this week. Too much work ie teaching work. I did a talk at the Quilters’s Guild in York, worked at a school etc
I am also trying to finish my entry for Festival of Quilts – the deadline is approaching and it is still not finiahed, although I dont think there is much more to do. The pictures will go up in August, I dont think it will win a prize, there is too much embroidery, and it is not “designed” but it will be interesting for everyone to see!IMG_0014

Busy week

This week I have been working hard but have very little to show on my blog. I dont want to put pictures of my new quilt as it is going to the Festival of Quilts in August. I have also been trying to tidy my studio – I have done a couple more cupboards and put a load of fabric away.
The photos show my examples I made for todays teaching

New 5 x 7

To get my students started on this years challenge I have made the first of this years challenge.
The words so far are as follows, to be made at any month. So the words are
Garden
Passion
Travel
Luxurious
Wooly
Dotty
Birds
Arches
Culinary
Coast
Memories
I am not sure which one this will be – it could be coast, or travel or memories.
It is the French coast, with the flowers of the roadside that I cycled past all last week

New Journal Quilt

Following our cycle trip to Normandy I have been working on my next journal quilt – (June/July)
It has been such fun to do – at one point my husband looked like Burglar Bill and the “dead” person is surposed to be me!It is all stitched in Gutterman 12 weight cotton on tea dyed linen. I should finish it tomorrow
