What I'm up to...

For those of you who are a member of the BQL Yahoo group you'll be able to see the component parts of the February Bag Challenge. I've only recently got back into the habit of looking at this site so I completely missed the bag challenge. However Kandy has very kindly let me join, but I need to pull my finger out and get this completed. I think I've done most of the hard bits now and the rest 'looks' quite straightforward.
I also need to get ready this week for my class at The Bramble Patch on Saturday. If any of you are going to be there do let me know and I'm sure the rest of the class would be more than happy for you to have a look at what we're up to.
Had a worrying Friday evening as Flo disappeared. Neither of us had seen her all day. So I kept going out in the evening each hour - shaking the cat biscuit box outside - it was really cold. I knew I'd end up having to walk up and down the street shouting her at some point.
Well - when I did there was this very loud MEOWWWWWW from a garage over the road. Luckily there were in and I hope she's learnt her lesson now. She's too curious for her own good.
Have a good week.


Like a mother that knows her child's know your kitty's cry. So glad you found her..I suspect she was very cold and scared..poor thing.
Like the bag...coming together very nicely!

The bag looks pretty. Glad you found Flo. I know how frantically worrying it is when you're looking for lost pets.

We unfortunately lost my sister's dog in the more permanent sense last week. She was struck down by a sudden, fatal virus. So we're making lots of fuss of my parents dogs at the mo.

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 …
