What I've been up to...

Hello all - yes I'm still here.
Wow what wonderful weather we're having at the mo. 
Well - I've been busy - as you can tell from the lack of posts.
Well - I've been to Malvern - where one of our group won 1st prize in the cot quilt section
I entered a quilt - but was very disappointed with how it looked when it was hung - very very creased with a scunched up patch too. I think i was aprtly to blame as I didn't hang it before I sent it. So, I've washed it again, and this time its stored on a roll with bubble wrap layered. I hope this will improve it's next showing.
The weather has also brought everything out in the garden - here's one of my jumbo poppies.
I just love them.
And finally - just to prove I am working my way though my OU Digital Photography course - even if I'm a little behind schedule - here's one of my edited photos.
I'll show you original next time.
Have a great weekend.

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.
Hello all, Apologies to you for the gap between posts.  I've been a little preoccupied with getting our bathroom sorted. It's amazing how you can have work done in one room of the house and the rest of the house turns into absolute chaos. And why has everything started to break, microwave, washing machine, kettle...  Anyway - as I keep being reminded it has to get worse before it gets better!
Our little kittens are growing fast - they are quite leggy now and still very fast. I'll try to get a photo of them. It will have to be when they're asleep.
On the sewing front I'm still working on my NYB swap. I'm making progress but the deadline is a little nearer than I'd like. Tomorrow I hope to be able to make some more progress with the NYB without my little helpers.
An exciting development has also been happening. I've been teaching at Coles in Nottingham. They have a really well laid out spacious first floor room for classes.  It has a lift so anyone with mobilit…
