I spent last weekend in the Geneva area teaching and visiting my friend Chantal
Followed by a lovely evening with raclette and aperertif
We went to visit the Ethnographic museum in Geneva and I took masses of photos but I left my camera at Chantal’s so they are still in France.
We met up with Elizabeth and a long lunch in the sunshine
And a walk along the lake
Next day we met up with Caroline and had the day walking and talking. it is so good to have friends all over the World
Just look at the views of Mont Blanc in the background! We then went to a bizarre Cow fighting festival – lots more photos but sadly they are on my camera – I do love this guys hat
Back home and I have been teaching this week at the Quilt Cabin a design class and a stitching class
It was good to teach design again – it seems ages since I have taught just paper and paint classes.
The Quilt Cabin has some of my work up on display
And the new kit is available from their website
The weather has been fabulous and I have been out walking and cycling
I always like it when students send me pictures of their finished pieces
Here is Amsterdam by Joke
I have very little chance to do any of my own work this week but have been working on the teaching samples for the Spring Knitting and Stitching show in London. they need to appeal to the younger audience who like things to make for their home. Hope they will be ok?
A had a walk in Hebden Bridge today and took these photos – given me some good ideas for my design class
I have an exhibition planned for next March at Midsomer Quilting near Bath
It will be a joint exhibition with Sheena Norquay and I think it will be called
Is it really 40 years?
We are going to include some of our first quilts plus our most recent ones.
This is a long post but I guess I fit a lot into a week!
