Crikey it's hot!

Yes it's hot - still.  But I'm not complaining.

Just wanted to tell you about a couple of forthcoming exhibitions:

The main part (with the quilt exhibition) is 23 + 24 June.  Additionally we have open gardens on 24 June.
The quilt exhibnition is on in the Parish Hall from 11 - 5, we have a raffle, sales table and (the best bit) is there are tea and cakes for sale.  Proceeds will go to The Samartins and the local Guides and Scout groups.  It would be lovely to see you there.

This is an exhibition of work from the members of the Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild.
It's on from 14 - 18 August from 10 - 4. On Friday they have a late night from 6-9 at Wycliffe Memorial Methodist Church, Lutterworth, LE17 4EZ.
Demonstrations, a sales table (which is made up of work from the members) and - you guessed it - more tea and cakes.

Keep sewing - I'm sure it'll cool down soon.
Have any of you bought Festival of Quilt Tickets yet?  I've got tickets for some of the lectures and the coffee morning.

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…
