Busy busy busy

So.  Apologies again for being really rubbish at posting on my blog.  I have been really busy.  Most of it self induced - some of it not.
So I'll start with a talk at Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild in April.  
The speaker was Ingrid Karlsson-Kemp.  A really interesting talk about how her work is really story telling about her life and her cultural heritage in Sweden.
She delivered a very interesting, animated talk with great illustrations of her work and the explanation of the history behind them.  She explained how she used a range of found fabrics from her family home which she said enabled her to bring that story of that fabric to her work.  In addition, she inserted subtle references to Swedish Psalms which formed an important link to her growing up. 

 It was a really interesting talk.
More posts to follow.... no honestly there will be

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…
