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.

A January jumble!

This is my second piece inspired by the photograph taken in my nephews barn. Reflected sunlight through a polythene sheet, tacked over the window spaces. I made the first one below in paper and silk for a challenge, but it was sold in a local gallery! I decided to re-make it, but this time in cloth and above is the result. What do you think?

Below is one of the heart pieces I'm making to celebrate Valentines day. This and another, along with some cards will be on sale in the Corner Gallery, Carshalton Beeches.

The February issue of Popular Patchwork has an article about the CQ@10 Cornish tin mine challenge that I took part in last year. I was thrilled to find that they have included my quilt in their article. Fame at last eh?!!

I hope you are all keeping warm during this cold snap, and I must say that it's during weather like this that I am so pleased to be using one of my lap quilts over my legs. Very snug!
