And here are my samples. Not so great. But as DH keeps telling me that's the whole reason you make up samples. I know - but I was still annoyed.
My next few photos are of Kaye and her quest with painting bondaweb - she's really mastered it. The bondaweb was painted with silk paints - and this dries relatively quickly. The it's torn and ironed onto the fabric - she then painted in the gaps. As you can see it gives a great result.

Just to prove I did make something on Saturday in the Village Hall (with its great new windows) and even finished it off on Sunday - my advent calendar. The pre-printed panel has sat in a box for a couple of years and I'm really pleased with it finished. Now I've just got to sort something out for the pockets. I was trying to think of some non-chocolate things - perhaps treats like treat yourself to a soak in the bath. Do you any ideas?

Hi. I've caught up now from my holiday. So now I can tell you all about it.
The cottage with the green door is the one we stayed in - Stuckie Ben, Southwold. It was a lovely cosy cottage, with very steep stairs which can be a bit of a challenge when you have big feet. But we really liked it. It did have everything - all the mod cons needed.
Here's the view from the front door across to Walberswick - and it did flood there. Luckily we escaped the flooding and the only bit we had to avoid was the flooded A12.Here's the view from South Green down the hill to our cottage. As you can see we're right on the edge of the village.An iconic view of Southwold - Gun Hill with the lighthouse in the background. The lighthouse is open in the summer and the view from the top is fantastic on a clear day. It's a bit hairy getting up there but well worth the effort.
Crashing waves on the promenade. This was on the Sunday (I think) and the worst of the weather had passed by but it was still rather rough. The sandy it you can see if the promenade - and should be nothing but concrete, you can seen how it's virtually covered in sand now.
Here's a great gallery. Lots of fun items. The Serena Hall Gallery.
I can't praise this shop enough and the Heidi Pie was a real find. It's goats cheese, spinach and I think it was butternut squash. It was divine. I know I have a bit of a thing abouts Goats Cheese but even DH said it was great. Not too much pastry, nice and light and stuffed to the top with filling. Mmmmmmmm

Hope you're all OK.

And here are my fabrics I bought - the ones above are for my stash.
The bottom ones are for my pink quilt - circles and squares again.
And finally here's my experiment that didn't work. Can you even see the organza next to the printed A4 sheet? The idea was to see if photo transfer would work on organza and would show up - but as you can see it doesn't work. I'm back to screen printing in gold - which I know will work.
Finally - 'hi' to all of you who went to Quorn at the weekend. I know some of you are keeping an eye on Market Bosworth via my blog. Please feel free to stop by and say 'Hi'. And for those of you who went I'll see you in the summer.

Lots of circles
But not only circles
And here are some American style quilts - an example of one and then the whole row of them in different colours.
And a few more...
Hope you like them. It was a great day out.
