The kids are going back to school on Friday ( hallelujah!) so we have been uniform buying, entertaining, visiting relatives and trying to remain sane! lol!
I haven't achieved a huge amount of sewing over the last few weeks. Just little bits here and there. I have a baby quilt commission using gorgeous fabrics such as these -
I enjoyed seeing all the photos of the lucky people who managed to get along to the Festival of Quilts. I wasn't at all envious, honest! Anyhoo I have a quilting friend who is v keen to go next year so I think we are going to plan a wee expedition!
Inspired by the lovely Lu Summers and her fabulous Improv work, I made a little imrpov block just for fun. I am needing to replenish my supply of embroidery floss so will be doing that soon.
Oh and did I tell you that I will be teaching english paper piecing to a small group of students?? I asked on facebook if anyone would be interested in a patchwork and quilting class locally and a lovely shop owner in town asked would I like to run a class in her shop!!! So I will be running a wee course starting at the end of August and am really looking forward to it! I am understandably nervous as heck but can't wait!
