Passing the Time....

There's nothing better than spending these long cold
winters evenings in front of the fire with a little
project in hand.
Did I say 'little' project....
That might have been a slight under-exaggeration!!!

These little hexi blocks are destined to become
a King sized quilt for our bed.

My scrap box is once again overflowing
so in the true tradition of quilting I am 
turning them into something warm 
and homely.

That's 6 down.....How many to go?
.....maybe it will be finished in about 2 years
if i'm lucky!!

What could be better, on a long winter evening
snuggling up under a home made quilt, where every little bit of 
fabric used has a story to tell.

How I Love....

Those cold cold crisp Winters mornings.
We woke up this morning to find our
world had turned white with
a thick hoar frost.


The frost faeries had been hard at work
on the lilac tree!

Even the spiders webs looked amazing!

A very Christmassy looking ivy leaf.

One down.........

So that's one down, 5 to go!

Work is underway to complete the next 6 pieces of 
work for the exhibition in May 2013!

I have finally finished the first piece and the next 3 are
well under way. 

So, here is a little sneaky peek at a bit of the 
first piece!

All the pieces are based on the 'Goddess'
form and all will contain text that I 
find inspirational, both of my own 
making and reproduced with  
kind permission of the authors.
