I thought I'd introduce you to the cats.....
Here's Dennis - the old boy. Adorable - but getting into more mischief now. For example this morning he managed to get himself stuck in the gate and had to be rescued by myself and a neighbour. He's very sociable - with everyone and everything. As he's very deaf now he wails lots but shuts up as soon as you pick him up.

Fluff isn't quite as old as Dennis - but is getting there. She really is a ball of Fluff - hence the name. In spite of her age she still has silly sessions - chasing her tail and rolling about in the grass on her back.

Flo is the new edition. Only 5 months old. She may look cute here but don't be fooled - she can be a real terror. She is still running up to the top of the curtains, swinging - but as I don't like the decor I really don't tell her off too much. She has the occasional moment of sanity - perhaps one a day. I think her main problem is she has too much energy and can't burn it off. I wish I had the same problem.

I promise I'll post about quilting related things next time.

Cats are good...don't worry about posting about them. I love them as much as I love quilting...really they go hand in hand, don't they? Dennis looks like a sweetheart; a cat that loves a wonderful. Fluff looks quite prim and proper...hard to imagine her being silly...and Flo has a mischievous look in her do all kittens. I bet they really make your house a home. Thanks for sharing :o)

Outstanding Projects

Do you remember when this... became this? Well - It's time to get it finished.  This is my next project.  I intend to hand quilt kit with big black stitches. I always like to have a hand quilting project.
Last night I went to the Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild talk.  It was a great talk from Gizella K Warburton.  She shared her work with us - both textile work and photographs.  I really enjoyed seeing both.  Do have a look at her work.  It's abstract and uses some great fabrics which give the feel of the countryside.  These images give you a hint at the work Gizella produces. I hope to make progress with a few things this weekend and I'll post about it next week. Have a great weekend.

Jean Littlejohn class

The Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild were very fortunate to have Jean Littlejohn teaching. I think most of the class managed to finish their morning piece - which was a small stitched picture that we then embellished.  For me it was a first with an embellisher and Jean generously let us use her machine.  The second piece was stitched with a more open weave fabric than many of us were used to sewing with. Jean generously provided this fabric that was dyed and she also provided a size 14 Chenille needle - again much larger than we were used to, but the big eye enabled us to use a thinker thread to fill the space. We then bond webbed and foiled over the stitches,  So - a great class. Here are some photos from the day:
I'll post more photos as the work progresses.

Market Bosworth Festival

The Festival was a great success this year.  It was lovely to meet some of my blog readers... you know who you are. Above is a photo of Helen Rhodes who was demonstrating in the Bosworth gallery.  She's so nice and produces great work - do have a look at her website.  Here's a photo of the Town Crier - not sure where he was from, but he looked very smart in his outfit.  And here is the lovely Bee Design stand.  She also makes great paper products.  I wanted to show you the quilt Phyllis made using Edwina's 'cut and come again' method.  It was very popular with visitors.  I thought you'd like to see some of the work completed by some of the ladies who were beginners and are now producing great work.  If you'd like to know more about classes drop me a line and I'll forward you details on.  Don't worry I don't teach - the lovely Linda does.  Here is my small contribution to the show.  At long last I finished hand quilting with a seed stitch and got the …
