Last week I was teaching in Down South – a busy week but I managed a little time off and met a friend at RHS Wisley.
Yesterday i went to pick up my work from the Bramble Patch in Weeden Bec, my exhibition raised £1500 for Macmillan Nurses. Lots of good feedback.
Looking forward to teaching there in a couple of weeks time
I have just returned from a few days cycling in Holland. I took masses of photos of the tulips. Here are just a few. I really want to make a quilt based on the tulip fields but I have too many other quilts to make. I should have more time after I have been to Veldhoven and Canada in May. I still have about 3 quilts to finish for Veldhoven.
I have just returned from having a stand at the ICHF show in London at Excel. We were also exhibiting our 2012 Voyage Quilts from an International Textiles Group that I belong to.
Here are some photos of my stand and the Voyage Quilts
Our Quilts were much admired and it has given us many thoughts about where we are going with our group, how they should be displayed in the future etc
It was good to have a few days with Dijanne Cevaal from Australia and Jane Oughton came to help us on Friday.
A section of my Indian ladies Quilt was used for the Publicity Poster. It was printed on to Board and was about 3m high. Pity I couldn’t take it home
I went for a walk along the canal one morning and took these photos.
Would make a great “line” inspired quilt
And this one would be good for circles
Excel is located near the O2 arena – not such a good photo but interesting patterns
It is a long drive to London, but i was able to deliver some more of my work to the Bramble Patch near Northampton on the way. My exhibition opened there on Saturday – I haven’t seen it yet but Sarah Shower’s group have an exhibition there as well and she called in to the Show at Excel on Saturday afternoon and says it looks good. I will be there on Friday (all day) and Saturday morning having 2 “Open Studio” days
Please call in if you are near.
After the Show finished on Saturday I then went on to stay with some good friends Hugh and Jane in Cambridge. I was so grateful for lovely food, wine, a comfy bed and great company!
