Very museum filled week. Monday taking down and putting away the last exhibition.
I have no idea when I shall see it again and I did make a block. It is the less than interesting one with 4 flesh coloured circles. This remains one of the most technically difficult pieces of patchwork I have ever done …. but won’t bore you with the details.
Tuesday and the new exhibition was hung. Lots of people, lots of furniture moving, carrying of quilts, climbing ladders …. even some carpentry. First sighting of the new Kaffe Fassett quilts which have been inspired by 15 of the heritage quilts from the Guild collection. They were hung in pairs and some even from the medieval rafters!
Wednesday, a walk round the exhibition with Kaffe and Brandon Mably for the volunteers so we could find out about the collection and ask questions – so that hopefully we can answer the visitors questions.
Thursday and a lecture. Today a private view ….. tomorrow an afternoon shift.
The gallery looks great – very colourful as you might imagine. For the first time photographs can be taken which will be lovely. Much nicer than telling folks they can’t.
Meantime, on the home front, the weather has been lovely and I have plopped Frank out into the garden despite the fact that he would happily sleep. Anyway, he found these lettuces and was very happy to have a munch.
Today, great excitement as a large parcel arrived from ‘Granddad Rob Designs” containing his new house.
