I havent put any entries on my blog for a while as along with Christmas I have made another set of flowers ready for Uttoxeter show in April.
I started work on the next project, or at least started thinking about it
This week has been party week. We have had some good food.
On Tuesday at our Ripponden Mark Makers group Ruth gave a presentation on our week in the Lakes
Completed paper 5×7
I might add a little hand stitching but otherwise it is finished
My last journal quilt is finished.
Some of the conversation that I might put with the quilts are as follows. My students are much better at it so I might wait until January to put it on the yahoo site
“Whose idea was it to include a button?”
“What do you think of my trendy new buttons?”
“I think i’ll make a felt quilt”
“I’m not impressed”
Do you want to borrow my needle?”
“I cant sew buttons on I have a piece of felt to make”
“Oh dear I cant think of what to do”
“I’m having a cup of tea”
“Anyone want some fabric?”
“I’m never going to get mine finished in time”
Interesting buttons as we know them were not invented until the 13thC (the lewis chessmen are 12thC)
I love Scandinavian designs and costumes and have been looking at one of my favourite blogs
This week I bought some napkins from a second hand shop, maybe not scandinavian but I like them
Not finished yet as it needs a binding
Not sure if you can see the key and the pair of scissors, I might stitch them on – havent decided.
Now I just need to write up the conversation between them.
Following my visit to the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh at the weekend, looking at the Lewis Chessmen, I have been doing some drawings.
