August 2018


Hello, so far its been a lovely hot summer, we had nine days away and beautiful hot weather, this is really unusual for us.

We had a week in Croyde, Devon and it was lovely and relaxing, lots of walks, a couple of trips to National Trust places and masses of photos taken. A lot of the photos I took are for inspiration for postcards and journal quilts, just need to find the time to create some!!


I did take six postcards on holiday to hand embroidery and also my tapestry cushion to stitch!! I can’t be without something to create.

We had a slow drive home, going to more National Trust places and staying in Portishead and Wells. More inspirational photos!


Over the whole month I finished nine quilted postcard and the rest of the month I have been working on a quilt project – more about that next month.


I have also been planning the quilts and projects for teaching in September. It feels like a long way off but it will soon be here. And I have been ‘playing’ with Scarpie marker pens to see how they work on fabric and I can use them on quilted postcards and wall hangings – for more on my ‘experiments’ then have a look at my Facebook page as I have and will be posting about them on there.


(remember I regularly post on Facebook!)
