Hello all,
Apologies for not posting last week - I was really busy and I just don't know where the time went. I'll explain about the photos of rusty things later...
I've had a bit of a eureka moment too. I'm sure the rest of world has had it quite some time ago. I wonder if some of you have had this moment too.
Do you seem to spend all your time doing things but don't seem top get the things you want done (did that even make sense!). I spend lots of time ticking things of my 'to do list' but I still seem to have loads of UFOs, lots of sketchbooks with half developed ideas and still have a pile of ironing left to do. I think I might know where I've been going wrong (my eureka moment). And it's all to do with goals - I know allot of you hate the idea of setting goals - but I think this may be the key to where I'm going wrong. I think if I set some big goals like - set up a virtual shop to sell your work, develop your ideas around colour or set out a structured study plan I can then draw down a list of 'to do lists' I'll actually do things off the list and I'll be working towards these bigger goals. I know - you're probably all there... but at least I'm there now. So how do you work towards those 'big' things? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Now the rusty things. In the last class with Bren I should have rusted some fabric - but I just couldn't find anything rusty. I know that's hard to believe but DH does keep a tidy garage. So when I was out with my mum yesterday we found a little place that had lots of lovely rusty things - so I'm off to rust. I promise to show you the results next time.
Take care of yourselves and I hope to hear from you all soon. It's been lovely to hear from you all with comments about my site and how it looks - please keep those comments coming.

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.

Stamping and printing with me at Quilteez

Hello all, For those of you who I met at the Market Bosworth Quilt Show in June you'll know that I was hoping to sort out a class to teach stamping and printing - well we've got there. The class will be on Saturday 18th November in Ratby organised by Quilteez. I hope those of you who expressed an interest will be able to come - I'm really excited about meeting you all.
In addition, this Saturday 9th September I'll be demonstrating at the Region 10 Area Day in Gotham. Here are some details for you:
Venue - Gotham Memorial Hall - it has lots of parking 10 - 4 Faith lunch Speaker: Gail Lawther Me demonstrating Sales - Quilteez
I'll also be bringing along my quilt 'Postcodes' that was exhibited at Festival of Quilts in the 'In the Spotlight' exhibition. And I'll have some samples made during the process. Hope to see you soon.
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…
