Happy, but exhausted

Back

from the Festival of Quilts, which was fun-but-tiring, and still sorting paperwork.. Aaaargh! I detest little bits of paper, which means that I am cruel to them, throwing them roughly into the bottom of my big bag and getting them all sweaty and crumpled

Just a couple of images, more later
Above, my Modern Sampler.. Apparently this was "Unsuitable for category" (Modern)
And below, Mel (co-ordinator) and Bridget (newsletter) from Region 9 leave the NEC with the last few Purses

Well, that was a long way...


We went to Germany, to Dance and Moon-mother
Watched over by wolves in Belgium (and well-fed)

Then built the Arbour


Ate lunch with frogs

Admired the tenacity of weeds

Sheltered from the rain

and parked by the School of Magic (Dunkerque Branch)

All to honour the Work, the Buffaloes, and the World

1326 miles, on two tanks of diesel and rather a lot of chocolate...

At Quilters' Haven...

...for three days of Modern Quilt jollities





The Schoolroom at Quilters Haven has welcomed my invasions many a time - it's a nice spot to sit and sew, and makes a lovely Exhibition Room with Quilt Shop Annexe..
Tomorrow (27th May) and Saturday 28th, I will be pottering, free-mini-workshopping, and playing..
Do come and join me (and Helen Butcher on Saturday) to play too...
10 till 4:30 each day, free admission and please do bring your machine for a small hands-on...

Lexden Arts Festival


I was pleased to be invited to show my smaller pieces at this delightful and well-organised event in Colchester, which runs from  this Saturday till next, and has a terrific programme of Art, theatre, storytelling, and music.. Here's my little corner, ably arranged today and ready to roll..
The Art stuff (and teas) are at St Leonard's Church, Lexden Road
Details here
http://www.lexdenartsfestival.org.uk/
and the church is well worth a look too - lovely Victorian stained glass for a start...

Duck Time!




It's that time of year again... Hatched from a nest in my yard...
I think we had 13 to start with.. Sadly, the attrition rate is frighteningly high.. Enjoy them while you can
