Because it is...

Quilt Routes

...the quickest way of doing it, these photos are taken straight from my Instagram feed.

I know that blogging has lost out to these other social media platforms but with only a few weeks to go before the Festival of Quilts and all the prep that it involves, quick and easy is the way to go at the moment.

Lots of rain storms over the last week or so have been hampering my fabric painting but there are the odd slots of sunshine. This pic was taken literally minutes after a huge downpour.

Lots of high tides and nice sunsets to look at though :D 

Thanks for visiting!

fabric friday



In between rain storms (so much for the heatwave!) I am painting up pieces for fabric kits which will be available at The Festival of Quilts :D
 ..and Gill, I hope to see you there because you have won the tickets in my giveaway!

Wishing you all a creative weekend.

working (very hard) wednesday!


Well it is that time of year again and I am running around like a headless chicken as I prepare for the Festival of Quilts. 
I have been working on some new pieces to display in my booth such as the piece above...


...plus I am working on some new designs that I hope to have ready for the show.


In true grasshopper fashion I am jumping form one project to the next.


This is something I started on this morning!
Hoping to get all of these wrapped up by the end of the week so that I can really crack on with the fabric painting.
There will probably be a few more frantic posts such as this one between The Festival of Quilts so please bare with me...

Thanks for visiting!

working wednesday

Cornwall

I am playing catch up this week as at the weekend it was time to collect my daughter from university in Cornwall. It wasn't all hard work as an invitation from a dear friend meant we also got to spend some time in Prussia Cove.

Cornwall

So much to inspire and delight!
...and talking of being inspired and delighted :D... yesterday one of my stitched seascapes was included in this Etsy Treasury.

Even if you are not in the market to buy there is a lot to be inspired by here. Take a look!
Thanks for being here,
