Hi. Yes I'm still here.
Sorry about that - I didn't realise it had been almost a month. Anyway no great excuses - so I'll just crack on.
The piece below is made up of the left over binding and pieces of fabric I had left from my Bosworth Water Tower. I thought I could use it to try out a few ideas and techniques rather than have them on lots of bits of calico sandwiches all over the place. I promise I'll post it when it's finished.
In my Bramble Patch Class, Bren set us all a 'postcard challenge'. The idea was to exchange postcards and use them as as inspiration to make a gift for the person whose postcard it was.
I forgot to take a photo of the postcard - but it was of a bicycle under a tree in a wild flower meadow with the Oscar Wilde quote of 'I can resist anything but temptation'. Well I can resist anything except tea and cake - so that was what I made.
I received a beautiful Dream Catcher with a dragon fly on it. I'll take a photo for next time.
And as it's the last class for the summer (we meet again in September) I thought I'd take in a Birthday cake - it's just under a month early. I hope you can all see the patchwork flowers on it....
And finally I did the Race for Life on Wednesday last week at Warwick Racecourse. I'm very impressed I managed it - I did jog all of the way (well except when DH was there to let me have a drink). If you'd like to sponsor me - you still can - here's a link to my sponsorship page.
Many thanks to you who have already done so.
Well - that's it for now. Have a great weekend.
