I really hoped I was going to get back into the swing of regular blogging but it seems the universe has other ideas. I've not had much I could blog about until the last week, and then being ill took up most of my free time. The picture is from last Saturdays class for Rickmond and Kew quilters. It had to be postponed in the summer when I managed a concussion the day before, so there was no way I was missing it again. We were making faux trapunto roses and a lot of fun was had. This group came up with a lot of new variations to the class which was great and we came up with some interesting ideas for other ways to use the technique. One of which I think will become a new workshop. I just wish I had thought to take morew pictures. I'll get back into the swing of this if it kills me and with more bookings coming up hopefully it won't take too long

Mostly I've been boring

I know you aren't supposed to admit this but the truth is my life has been quite boring to the last few weeks. There has been paperwork accounts and tax returns. House work and planning but not much of interest to quilter, well not unless the cleanliness of my toilet is interesting, sparkling ;) I am now back clearing some customer work before getting onto my next show quilt. The picture is one of those. This was an intersting quilt for me to do as it needed a cheaper version of the quilting I put on the last one I did. I was lucky enought to quilt a show quilt last year for Jenny at Patchwork Corner and this is the same as that. I am pleased that it has the feel of the original and I hope the customer will agree.

Tonight I am giving a talk to Amwell Quilters. I just hope the snow stays at a minimum and they make it there. I aught to get back to driving, but I thought it would be good to show I hadn't forgotten you all.
