A big tidy up

My studio was in a mess! I have spent many hours this week cleaning, tidying, and re-organising it. I have found all sorts of treasures that i had forgotten I had but have also been quite ruthless, eg piece of fabric the was smaller than about 2″ square, went in the bin. I sorted all the fabric and put it in all the correct boxes

I even have a sofa in my studio now!

I found a pile of selvedge magazines and a pile of very old embroidery magazines.

The date on this one is 1957!

I found this little waistcoat that I made for my daughter about 23 years ago. I think it was my first piece of contemporary quilting.

I have been continuing with my jumpers theme and I made some Christmas cards, unfortunately I didn’t get them written or posted – maybe I should just save them for next year. I also made a couple of Christmas presents.IMG_0031 IMG_0029 IMG_1464

 

I have a couple of unfinished quilts.

This one is almost finished, some detail is needed on a few of the jumpers, and obviously some of the loose threads removing. Then they need to be joined together

The weather has been fabulous over Christmas and I have taken masses of photos.

Here are just a few of the ones I like
