A mid week post

Yep - it's Wednesday and here I am posting...

As you saw on my last blog I was getting a piece of calico ready for my dyeing class - so I thought I'd show you what it looks like now I've pulled all the threads together.
Here's the back:


And here's the front:


I'm really looking forward to seeing how it dyes.
I also wanted to say what a great quilting meeting we had on Monday - it was an unplanned show and tell plus a chat about our marks at Trentham. One of our members has done a fantastic job of machine quilting our quilt to raffle at our festival. Our chosen charity this year is LOROS. It does look really great. He also had a large quilt it had taken him 7 months to hand quilt - it really looks fantastic. We had a glass of bubbly to celebrate one of our members getting second place in the bed quilt category. And our newest member had finished the small quilt she was working on. So all in all a celebratory evening.
I've also taken the brave step of using my sketchbook and using watercolour paints - a first for me. I promise to show you the results when I have a few more pages.
