Four things

Well - I was thinking about what to post about tonight and Jane at Sew Create it has tagged me - so I don't have to think.

4 jobs I've had
  • working in a shoe shop when I was at school
  • Bingo Hall - no I didn't call the numbers, I was the Office manager and I can honestly say it was the worse job I ever had
  • working in various libraries - I really enjoyed that
  • Asda on the tills when you sat side on and had to re-pack the trolley, boy did you get back ache
4 films I could watch over and over

  • Moonstruck
  • Some like it Hot
  • James Bond films (but not with Roger Moore or Timothy Dalton - sorry)
  • Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - Howard Keel is fantastic in this.

4 TV shows I watch

  • Heroes
  • The Tudors
  • Doc Martin - I know that's a bit sad but it's got nice scenery and is relaxing to watch
  • Strictly Come Dancing - (And 'It takes two' when I can fit it in)

4 places I have lived
  • Portsmouth - very nice near the seaside
  • Knaresborough, North Yorkshire - a really beautiful place
  • Heanor, Derbyshire - we were rather skint then,
  • Market Bosworth - the best yet
4 favorite foods:

  • Chocolate
  • Sticky toffee pudding
  • Stilton cheese - even though it gives me a headache, just means when I eat it I have to eat loads to make it worthwhile.
  • really nice fresh bread, white, wholemeal, with seeds....

4 favorite colors:
  • Brown
  • Cream
  • Turquoise
  • Red

4 places I'd love to be right now:
  • Ragdale Hall - if you've not been and you get the opportunity it's great spa. I promise a few days will feel like you've rested for a week.
  • Japan - because I haven't been and I'd love to see what it's like
  • Quilting retreat with a shop and a bottomless purse (see I don't want much really)
  • Little seaside town on a sunny day
4 names I love but could/would not use for my children:
As i haven't got any children it's not something I've really considered - sorry

4 people I'd love to tag with this Meme: (don't think you've been tagged)
Have a good evening.

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 …
