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
