BQL February bag challenge

Hello to you BQL people out there - I know you've been sneaking a peak. Hope you're all well and can see I've joined into the spirit of the BQL bag challenge and completed the February one and I've been a good girl and I've posted my photo in the album. I'm looking forward to the March one now.
As you can see I've been concentrating on this bag this week - so I haven't done much else apart from my creative thing each day (and sometimes that's been the bag). I am know in our group as a bit of a bag lady - in a nice way (I hope).
Tomorrow I'm off to the Bramble Patch for another class with Brenda - I've got to crack on and sort out my binding for my exhibition piece for their Easter show and I've also got to decide whether to enter it for Malvern.
I'll leave it there for now. Hope you all have a great weekend.

Well done! It's super!!! I haven't even managed to print off the instructions yet as my internet access is so limited and attaching to a printer impossible. Hope to get to it soon though :O)
Looks great. Very February in red and pink! So will March be done in greens? I really like the March bag...much more to my taste.

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 …
