Thank you for all your kind comments about ' Birchington Breakwaters' winning Fine Art Quilt Masters. Names went in a hat and the winner of the small textile sketch to celebrate 10 years of blogging is ' Jill' . Congratulations and thanks for reading. If you leave your address via the contact page on my website, I'll post it to you.
Also at Festival of Quilts, I had a second piece made using a section of old quilt, this time painted, selected for SAQA's ' Made In Europe II' imaginatively called 'Birchington Breakwaters II' !
This exhibition will be on display at the West Country Quilt and Textile Show in Bristol 1-3 September. Sadly won't be going this year as it clashes with the 'Hop Festival' and a Proms concert but had a super time last year exhibiting with Cwilt Cymru
I'm gradually coming back down to earth, catching up on washing and boring house stuff and working out what to do next! I discussed mentoring with Christine Chester at Studio 11 when I was on the 'Printing the Coast' course and have now booked a session for October to help me make some decisions.
Meanwhile on the stitching front I had a lovely day at the Rosegarden in Westmarsh stitching bunting for Jan's wedding fueled by cake and Pimm's and finished August's CQ Journal Quilt ( my theme is 'Traces, Places' but it might just as well be 'Breakwaters' ! )
