A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

Getting started again.

My Journal Quilt for September. I have called it September meanderings. It started out as scrap cloth for mopping up some silk paint, but I decided to fill in the white areas with yet more paint before free machine stitching the surface with a meandering pattern, including some text.
I have been very busy since the middle of August with family affairs. My daughter and grandson have been staying, they live in New Zealand, so it has been wonderful to have them here. They returned on Thursday,and I'm feeling very lost, and rather sad at present. However, we also became grandparents again on the 31st of August to another darling little grandson, and luckily he only lives a twenty minute drive away.

I can't remember if I've put this small quilt on here before or not, so apologies if I am repeating myself. This little quilt is also only about 10'x10', and is called 'An English Country Garden'. It vaguely resembles our garden, which is also quite small.
