.........what I was doing yesterday.

fabric painting workshop

Giving a 'Play with Paint' workshop to the lovely ladies of Swansea Quilters.
I always enjoy visiting this group as they are a happy friendly bunch.
I have never been kept so well supplied with tea and coffee!

As you can see we were a bit short on space, but everyone mucked in and we got lots done.

Tag Along

I have been TAGGED!

Thank you to Heather whose work I love, for tagging this blog.

I was unaware of this blogging phenomenon but the rules are as follows

1. Tell who tagged you. (DONE)

2. Add a link to their blog.(DONE)

3. Award 3-5 bloggers who you think deserve this award.

My choices are Anne, whose work always makes me feel nostalgic because I used to live in Borneo too!

Sandra, who is a very well known and accomplished art quilter, but I love her work so much and I have two of her books, and her blog is so very informative.

And Marianne, because I have completely fallen in love with her "Quilt As You Go" quilts.

Inform them & post directions to your blogspot. (Will do)

The goal of this award is get more publicity to blogs that are good, but not so well known.

I can't say that the blogs I have chosen are not well known, but I like them and I hope you do too!

The pics are of the back of the work from my previous post. I think I would like to do something in black and white.

This was supposed to be a quick project to get back into the swing of things.

 It has taken rather longer than I had planned, guess it was all those filler stitches (note to self: not good for a quick project).

I love the texture that lots of stitching gives a piece though, so I am glad I did it, and I now have a new cushion.

I even put a zipper in using a tutorial from House on the Hill


When I started this piece, I chose the dark stitching to add contract to the pieces of fabric that were very similar in value.
