No, I haven't been cross all of that time……

…..just busy with family, getting back to work, and having some thinking time about a major project.  Little bits of stitching ( mostly by hand)  from these past three weeks

Inspired by Art now bound with 1/4 inch binding - not curved, just photographed on a curved bench between showers and gusts of wind. A3 size.


back, with an embroidered label as an entry to one of the competitions that our quilt group is currently running.


Dr Who embroidery to become another label for entry in to said competition.  I am learning to be very wary of using hand-dyed threads on anything that is to be washed.  The dark blue here ran terribly, but it isn't critical for this.  Approximately 8 inches square.  Pattern came from one of the artists on the Dr Who quilt along, but I can't remember who.

R1033834  Version 2

Globe embroidery, bought as a batch from Urban Threads, in case they also decide to withdraw their designs from sale in the EU due to the pdf pattern download  /multi-country VAT debacle.  About 6 inches square.


Postcard for stocks made from the trimmings of the "Inspired by Art" piece.


A lovely walk in the countryside yesterday


and then coming across this fine bird in a pub car park.

R1033830  Version 2




  1. Lots of lovely stuff! See you tomorrow xxx

  2. Glad you haven't been cross all the time - I was beginning to wonder if the lurgy was holding you back! Well done on your quilt and your labels - great entries! My own contribution has been to mislay my 'inspired by' quilts completely. Oh well, several months to find them, I guess.


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
