Oh - such fun

Hello all.
I hope you've had as nice a weekend as I've had.
Thought I'd share some photos of what I've been up to.
So this pile of fabric was added to the old saucepan containing Potassium Permanganate and hot water and stirred. 
 They are then rinsed in cold water until the water is clear
 And then you hang them out to dry
And this is what you end up with. Lovely brown fabric. 
 Oh - such a pile of lovely fabrics.  As usual not too sure what I will do with them, watch this space
And here is progress with the incubator top I'm making. It's very bright - but that's the idea. 
I also made progress with my mystery quilt and made up a pieced back and started to hand quilt in black cotton perle with black running stitches.
Hope you all had fun and I'll let you know how I'm getting on


The brown/beige fabrics are beautiful! Can't wait to see how you use them.

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…
