Pour l'Amour du Fil Part 2
The name of the show translates as 'For the love of thread' and I'm sure we can all relate to that. Here are a few more photos of the great quilt show in Nantes which I visited on 26th April. I make no apology for showing you so many (though I have kept bac...

Lozenge layered
Forgot to post the photo of actual Spring flowers last time so here they are: early dog violets in all their modest beauty. There is not much depth of field with my little automatic camera so please forgive the less than professional shot, I just wanted to ...

Friday finishes x 2
Yes, I have TWO finishes today - amazing, feels so good, as both have history.  It is great to get them completed.  I especially enjoyed handstitching the bindings, that final stage when you can take time to enjoy the process of completing.  It is almost sa...

In circles
As in, running around in circles...  Teaching, entertaining, cooking and tidying up.  Hospital appointments for my mother-in-law.  All the stuff that leaves you with nothing to show for how you have spent your day, but nonetheless necessary. Not much sewing...

Spring cleaning the Chandelier
What does spring cleaning mean to you?  Pail of soapy water and a scrubbing brush?  No, me neither. For me it means pulling everything out of the sewing cupboard and finding projects which are almost but not quite completed, then completing them.  I feel so...

Project roundup
Working on lots of bits and pieces this past couple of weeks.  Never seemed the right time to blog; husband hogging the computer or I didn't have the right photo and the light was dreadful.  We are still quite grey and chilly here, with only the occasional ...

Spring flowers
My finish today is the Disappearing Hourglass which I started here and continued here : a flowery quilt for the spring flowers and blossom we are enjoying at present.  It is not quilted but the blocks are all made and the top is together.  As I have to go s...

Secret Garden Scrappy Trips - finished
Some photos of the finished quilt on a cold but beautifully bright day.  Quilts always look good in natural surroundings, don't you think?  And not just so that I don't have to tidy up at home... I started this quilt back in September 2014 with fabric purch...

Scrap happy Spring fling
It actually felt like Spring today, after endless grey, cold days.  It was good to see the sunshine and hear the birds singing again. A friend gave me these daffodils a week ago when they were just two inches high and there was no sign of any flower buds.  ...
