Its Me!

I have recently been to visit my lovely sewing group in Monifieth who were having their tri annual exhibition, I think this was the fourth – certainly the third anyway.  It was lovely and I will add some photos later.  I got into some trouble for being so absent with this blog.  Same as before …as the job got bigger and bigger …. I got less enthusiastic :-(  THEN some technical problems.  However, that sorted.  Here is a gallery of the students who have put up with me since you last saw me.IMG_2752 IMG_2852 IMG_2851 IMG_2850 IMG_2849 IMG_2848

This was Christmas week and a very successful little picture which looked great in an Ikea frame!

Next some grown ups learning some beginners patchwork.   We had great fun and some gorgeous cushions got made.P1010136 P1010135 P1010134 P1010133 P1010131

I think that is enough for now.

Thanks for noticing :-)


She did What?!

Well, there went 6 weeks and last Saturday the Quilt Museum closed its doors for the last time.  Lots of museum friends arrived on the final day so it wasn’t as sad as it might have been  AND there was lots of cake and even some bubbly!

On Monday and Tuesday of this week I was in to help take the Art Quilt exhibition down and get it all packed up ready to be sent off to its next destination.IMG_2740



That was sad, as the room emptied out not to be filled again.IMG_2746

Now, a potted ‘what else has been going on’ :-)

I am prepping for a few workshops:

Free Machine EmbroideryIMG_2673

Double sided table runner P1010119

and during half term lots of children’s workshops all Halloween based.IMG_2722

I designed these Goth dolls that proved to be very popular and if you visit York School of Sewing on Facebook and scroll down, you will see lots and lots of pictures of all that went on that week.
