This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

It's so quiet....

...and a bit gloomy around here.
I am enjoying the quiet and making the most of spending the time with family before they go back to work, college and school next week.

The gloom comes from the weather.
Feels like Autumn already...but where was Summer?

Quiet hand stitching...

...and planning what to do with my FoQ purchases.

Tour de Birmingham

Not sure where this piece has come from, but I have been wanting to do something with these fabrics ever since I painted them.
I randomly pieced strips together, knowing that I wanted to add lettering, but not wanting to add any of the overused words that we see on pieces all over blogland!

It might not be obvious to everyone where my inspiration came from but the yellow and green do correspond to some important elements of a certain Tour.

This will now be coming with me on a Tour de Brum (that would be Birmingham for any non U.K. visitors) to the Festival of Quilts!

What would your "tour" be of?

See you on the other side:)

(It was) a Wonderful Wednesday!

In amongst the preparations of fabrics etc, for Festival of Quilts I have been trying to put a couple of new pieces together.

Can you guess what my inspiration for this piece was?
