An Inspirational Exhibition

I've been without a computer for two weeks, but now I'm back and a very happy bunny!

I had a lovely day in London yesterday.  I went to the Fashion and Textile Museum to see the Kaffe Fassett Exhibition.

It was amazing! It began with photos of his family and when he was small, going on to his paintings, tapestry, knitting and quilts until the present.  I really enjoyed it.

It's on 'til the 29th June.  Do go and see it if you can.

.....'til the next time, keep quilting

Fibre Postcards & ATC Catchup

Time to catchup with the fibre postcards and ATC's I've been making.  The birthday card and memory ATC for my friends in Austria...............

A little bit of Clarice Cliff for the postcard

...........and an ATC in memory of baby Klausi.

The last Popular Patchwork postcard swap theme was Africa which I had previously mentioned, but I hadn't put up the card I had made for Katy.  So here it is...............

..............and the Popular Patchwork ATC swap theme was the poem The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear.  My inspiration came from the last verse, 'And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, they danced by the light of the moon'.

..............'til the next time, happy quilting

Back from my Travels

I'm back from my travels to Austria.  We stayed with our dear friends who live in a village on the Danube.  It was great to meet all the family and old friends.  There were celebrations too.  A 40th birthday and a First Communion.  The weather was kind to us too, so we were able to go for walks in the lovely countryside and see the wonderful meadows full of Magarites and Cornflowers and Poppies.

I made loads of presents to take for the children and those celebrating special occasions.

............'til the next time, happy quilting
