OK, I've been here lurking, but the laptop is still out of action for a little longer, a new motherboard, and speakers have been installed, but a little more remedial work is still required.
But I HAVE been busy! This little pile is I've been using to try something out for Qubee
! Go check out his blog
tomorrow to see what wonderful surprises he has in store!
I was very lucky to win a postcard of my choice from The Quilt Rat
, and I can't tell you how beautiful it is, Thank you Jill :) If you haven't seen Jill's work, I really recommend you go take a peak, she is amazing!
Speaking of postcards, in March I was supposed to make something woven for Expedition Quilt Art,
whilst I was tidying up bits and pieces for my city and guilds work, I grabbed the left over strips and set to on a woven postcard. Not thrilling, but it's done!
I also have one in the mail to a friend. I can't show you that one, sorry. I was away last weekend at a quilting retreat, whilst I didn't get as much done as I had hoped, more of that in a mo, I did scrounge a few bits and pieces to get a quick postcard made for Eileen who fell ill and had the prospect of her 77th birthday in hospital.
So back to the retreat, I got bindings sewn on 2 quilts, this one ...
And my version of Amanda Jeans' Film Strip. Sorry no pic till it's finally done!
And because this is a postcard from Lincoln, I've been out and about, with an early morning (very early!) dash to the Fens for a shopping trip. I captured this view on my way out of the city.
And last week, my partner and I were out celebrating his birthday, and whilst we were on our way home, I got this shot. I just love the vibrancy of the rape fields at this time of year.
I've been looking for a great landscape shot to use in one of the assignments for c&g and I think this is it!
I'll be back soon enough to show you what postcards we get from these...
This is mine ...
And this one is the Teenage Diva's! Based on a project they are working on at school. Have you been over to Expedition Quilt Art Blog
, Tina is doing a 'Follow me' project that will result in lots of postcards, go on, go give it a try!
