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.

For Your Inspiration



Every year this group of foxgloves appear on a mound near the river, adding a beautiful splash of colour to the surroundings. We took a walk there the other morning, my daughter and I, and she pointed out to me that the camera that I have been using for a least three years now has a Super Macro feature on it. Who knew!!!

*dim siarad Cymraeg

art quilt

This may or may not be part of a series.

welsh quilts

It has come about because of my enjoyment of doing this.

Hand painted fabric with lots of intense stitching and also a bit of "darning".

The back gives a clearer view of the stitching.

If this turns into a series I will explain my choice of title.
*dim siarad Cymraeg = don't speak Welsh
...which is a statement rather than a dictact but dw i ddim yn siarad Cymraeg = I don't speak Welsh, and that is a bit of a mouthful.

Well, it's Wednesday again already!


I sometimes get a bit bogged down in the whole thing of taking a good photo. The first of my latest little trio was taken inside the sewing shed. A bit dull and not a lot of detail showing.


Here they are outside in glaring sunshine (yes, the sun does come out occasionally). This is supposed to be a No No, but the stitching shows up a lot better. Just can't get the breeze to stop moving them all over the place :)


Monday evening I had the pleasure of the crossing the channel to give a talk to the Weston Super Mare Quilters.


I can see this coastline from my house and so it is always nice to go across and see it close up.


If I could just get there as the crow flies it would be much quicker!

working, post jubilee, wednesday


I have not done a working wednesday for a while, but this is what I have been up to.
A lot of stitching, as seen above and below.


Oh, and I have also been doing a lot of this...


and this...


and this...


...which basically means a lot of eating and watching the telly!!!

And I am not ashamed to say that I have loved every minute of it!

One of the highlights for me has been this.
