Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

I know that there is a lot of this kind of thing and not much stitching here lately, but these activities are getting the creative juices flowing and I am stitching.... don't have anything to show just yet!

Hope you are having a creative Sunday.

Valley Trip.

We took a trip up into The Valleys last week.

This viewpoint looks towards the Brecon Beacons.

The blue skies are deceiving. It was bitterly cold up there with a wind that  blowing straight in from Siberia (at least that is what it felt like :)

What is this?  A waterfall?

Yep! That would be a FROZEN waterfall! In  April!!!
Told you it was cold.

Region 12 Exhibition

The reason for me being up in the valleys (see previous post) was to make a visit to Cynon Valley Museum which was putting on an exhibition of quilts made by members of Region 12 of The Quilters Guild of the British Isles.

Turkish Delight by Anne Lewis and Me!

There were many lovely quilts but I have chosen to feature here the ones that belong to friends who I know won't mind me featuring them.

Dim Siarad Cymru plus Liz Savages' Welsh Babe (I know you have given this another name Liz :)

Joy Morgan** Welsh Quilt
Sonia Fox Ginkgo

Belinda Bajai Moonlight
Pat's interpretation of Nash Point (a local landmark) is one of my favourites.

 This whole exhibition was the brain child of our recently retired chair woman Jackie Pugh. She has put in an amazing amount of hard work during her tenure and this was her farewell for a job well done. I owe her a personal debt of gratitude as she has been very encouraging to me over the years. If it wasn't for her booking me to give a my talk (even before I had even put one together!) I probably would never have done anything.
A huge THANK YOU Jackie.

**Joy has begun a Virtual Quilt Group over on her blog Joy of Quilting. Go take a look.

Other commitments have kept me away from creating lately, but now I am getting back into the swing of things by putting together a couple of book wraps.

The top two are made out of old projects completed a while ago, and now re-purposed.
The bottom one started out as a class sample and I have written a short tutorial for it on my other blog if you are interested.

Linking up with Off the Wall Friday. Pop on over to take a look at what others have been creating.
