Well, its already June, the sixth month of the year, half way through!!! I will have to start thinking, I said thinking!!! About Christmas makes – Quilted Postcards, decorative gift hangers and gift ideas to teach. I have already been asked if I can come up with some ideas for quilted hot water bottle covers. It is just thinking at the moment, I won’t actually start creating Christmas ideas till September – towards the end!!!
I have only finished eleven Quilted postcards in May, all inspired by Jacobean Crewelwork embroidery. Other than that, I have been working on the Circles quilt, just a couple of borders to finish and put on and then the binding. As I have been using it to demonstrate different bits in class, I needed it only partly done for the last morning class before half term and then I haven’t had a chance over to get it completely as we have been away for a few days….
I have also been working on Drunkards path blocks, both the classic piecing and the modern way of making for the classes.
