Busy, busy trying to get everything together for our exhibition next week. I have done the main labels. I still need to do the labels for pieces that will be exhibited on tables and the road signs. Then get everything together and put it by the front door.

Here is the flyer – thanks, Dom.


Would love to see you there – I am stewarding all day Wednesday, Thursday evening and Friday afternoon. I will be around some of the other time.

Maggi’s suggestion to add charcoal fabric to my rust piece is working well and whilst progress is slow, I am really pleased with the combination of fabrics. Thank you, Maggi.

This is what it looks like at the moment.

Pathways WIP

More work to be done – more pieces and the quilting.

So lucky

I am so lucky. On Thursday, I had an email from Upper Street. My quilt, Bush Fires, has been accepted for the Fine Art Quilt Masters 2014. I am still grinning.

As yet, I don’t know who else has had a quilt accepted – no doubt the the list will come out soon.

Still grinning!!! And off to the boat.

It was the Sewing, Fashion and Hobbies show at the NEC this week. It is quite a small show and a lovely change from the very big busy Festival of Quilts show. You can walk around without getting run over by a mobile scooter or a trolley being dragged and there is lots of room for them to move without us knocking them over.

It is about half and half exhibitors and traders. The exhibition stands are mostly of an extremely high standard – great to see. Especially good to see such a high standard of embroidery.

CQ had their Journal Quilts on show and I went up with Yvonne on the Friday to steward – an easy task. I did not steward on the South West Textiles stand – by the time I saw the rota it was full and with only one day at the show, I would have seen nothing if I had stewarded at both. That would have been a shame.

Best stand for me was probably Sue Chapman who had all her marks sketchbooks and piece. Lovely susanchapman

Below is a picture of my two rust pieces at the show on the South West Textile Group stand. Photo kindly taken by Ros Lomas who does a great blog for the Marlborough Embroidery Guild website.
