Subtle quilt

This is the customer quilt I am currently working on. It's a very subtle sampler quilt in shades of cream. I like working on samplers as I use a lot of different techniques on them and they really make me think. This one more than most. I can't change the colour, I have to work entirely by texture and try to make the design of the blocks really pop. I think it's coming along really well. I just hope the customer agrees with me.

I am currently on myway home from the last part of my Ferreting Around class at the Wandering Line in Purley. We have come so far from the first class. Ithas been wonderful watching the quilts and the students grow. I'm going to miss them. Hopefully we will be able to reunite for another course soon. I hope they will all send me pictures of their quilts when they are done.

My trip down this morning was by train. I blew a radiator hose yesterday and I didn't have time to fix it. My journey home though is in our new toy. It's a small, elderly motorhome. I haven't had a look round yet but it seems to meet my requirements. It's basic but has a bed over the cab and will save me needing hotels. It is very loud. Probably due to the short exhaust pipe. I am looking forward to making textiles for it as soon as I have time.

wotcha ferret, good idea, I can see how it would give you a home from home, a kind of travelling sanctuary but is there room for your mates? and is the beer fridge big enough?

Oooo, the motorhome sounds great. Is it a well known type?
