Whilst it may seem that I've been very quiet this past year the truth is that it has been the complete opposite! I've been helping my Daughter plan her Wedding which took place on 21st April here in Somerset.
My main contribution was to design and make her dress and veil, the dress will be at Sandown next month, 2 bridesmaids dresses, a celebration quilt, (amongst other things this was for Vic to sit on to protect the dress) a ring pouch and a new case for her camera. Those amongst you who know her understand that she doesn't go anywhere without her camera!!
As if all that wasn't enough I'm now working with Victoria putting her images onto fabric and creating fantastic gift sets which we sell through her website, see links, and at Craft Fairs.
There's still more, as I sometimes needed a break from the sewing I've been making knitted and crochet lace items which are also available from us at the Fairs.
So now what's new. I'm currently quilting, yet another, Double Wedding Ring Quilt, this one very different from the others I've done so far. Piecing a Quilt for my Son and his fiancee and working on Christmas Items for sale later in the year.
There is still a lot of teaching going on as you will see from the revamped Workshop pages and the odd magazine project as well as visits around the country to various quilting groups so no chance of being bored any time soon.
I'll be at Sandown on the Sunday so look out for me and come and say hello!
