Cornwall

I am playing catch up this week as at the weekend it was time to collect my daughter from university in Cornwall. It wasn't all hard work as an invitation from a dear friend meant we also got to spend some time in Prussia Cove.

So much to inspire and delight!
...and talking of being inspired and delighted :D... yesterday one of my stitched seascapes was included in this Etsy Treasury.

Quilt Routes

Now matter what needs to be done my day always starts with a walk. I don't make it down to the beach as often as I would like these days as old Rosie dog is showing her age and finds it a struggle. Yesterday I couldn't resist though and it was slow progress but we made it .

I would like to call this colour coincidence as it sounds nice but, I think it has more to do with how our eye is drawn to colours.  After stitching this painted background on Sunday, my eye was drawn to photograph this on my walk on Monday morning.


This grows prolifically around here at this time of year. It has obviously working its way into my subconscious without me realizing.

A yahoo group that I belong to was full of mirth about this post from The Sewing Lawyer yesterday.
A long read but very amusing.

Thanks for being here!

Journal Quilts

Quilt Routes by Deborah O'Hare
2014 Journal Quilts
This is my second year of taking part in the Journal Quilt challenge set by the Contemporary Quilt arm of the Quilter's Guild of the British Isles. Last year I played with my Gelli Printing plate and explored abstraction. A closer look can be found here if you are interested :)

I thoroughly enjoyed the process last year, learning a lot. but this year I decided to keep it simpler and have put together some pieces that are more my style I suppose, but are alo in keeping with my plan to use up what I already have available.

This year's requirements were for pieces 6 x 12 inches. Landscape or Portrait format which has to be followed all the way through. I have opted for a landscape theme in a portrait form, if that is not too confusing, but I have cheated as you can see.

Some of might think you have seen this before and I did base it on this piece...

...which came about after I took a look at creating backgrounds for landscape quilts all of which can be found in these posts.

Now to start planning for July, August and September! 

Thanks for being here!
