So I am back from Festival of Quilts and as is usually the case, on the Monday i am unable to do much! I am trying to put away some of my things but the whole event is so exhausting that I am not doing very well.
I am sure that many will have already seen that my Jumper quilt won a 2nd prize in the Art Quilts Category which is very nice as it comes with a very nice cheque.
I think it is the biggest category at the show and there were more than 190 entries. I had some lovely comments on my judges sheet.
My new top made from fabric printed by Woven Monkey was also very much admired
Here are some photos of my stand
I met lots of lovely people, ex students, friends from all over the World and had a lot of fun!
I sold lots of my new book and lots of kits. I have been asked to teach at a few new venues and now I have to look carefully at my diary and see which ones I can fit in.
One of the first things I need to do is get fit again, I have been working so hard I have not had a chance to do much exercise and I haven’t really been out on my bike much.
I also have my new Sweet 16 in a an unopened box and it is time to get that out and play, but first there is one very messy studio to tidy up, and to actually have some time to look through my South African things.
