Wow Row Robin exchange is completed! We had the big reveal last Thursday and it was superb. It’ll be strange not having the coming and goings of these wonderous bags of fabric much to my husbands bemusement.
I was thrilled with mine it started as a bag of fabric – Kaffe Fassett Layer cake and a length of black fabric with a starter row and turned into a work of art.
I was gobsmacked its so beautiful and so many lovely rows, the others have gone to so much trouble it’s quite humbling. (It may have been helped by the bag of chocolates I put in with my fabric, a book on chicken yoga and a journal full of jokes for scribbling in if anyone didn’t feel like sewing).
Completing it ready for our exhibition in September as part of the annual Wirksworth Art and Architecture Trail is going to be a pleasure. This amazing event is held in peoples homes and venues across the town. Taking part are 150 sculptors, photographers, textile artists, jewellers, glass and silver workers.
Here are the other Worksworth Quilters, the photo doesn’t do them justice.
I’ve continued with TQS sew a row round robin which will be going on for over a year. These are the rows I’ve received so far. They are amazing!! I’m so lucky to have such creative quilting friends near and far. The theme of my quilt will be birds.
This months Facebook free motion postcard swap’s theme is embellishment so embroidery, beads, buttons, lace etc. Today’s tip is don’t embellish before free motion quilting and edging! It’s off to The Netherlands. Now do I put it in an envelope or argue with the PO counter assistant. Last time I sent one with a bead on he said it would break all their machinery and no one would get any post. It made it in one piece and there was no reports of a disaster at the sorting office!
Painting has taken up a lot of creative time since the beginning of the year. I find it totally absorbing and although a lot is fit for the bin I’ve had a few I’m really pleased with. I’ve made a separate gallery the link is above the blog title or click here Watercolour Paintings
Here’s a quick sample of a few
Finally my yummy grandson is 6 months old now and really shouldn’t be drinking wine yet!!!
