Saturday Quilting Bring & Share (29)

Welcome to Saturday Quilting Bring & Share 🙂 Take this opportunity to bring your latest project along to our virtual sewing day and share in the quilty conversations that have caught our interest. To join in just leave your comments in the box at the end of this post.

Hampshire Open Studios ended on Monday so I spent the start of this week clearing away the quilt display in my sewing room, through the corridor and into the kitchen. At the end of the week I transformed the sewing room into a guest room. Before my sewing machine and table were packed away I managed to finish the table runner I’ve called ‘Into the Woods’. I added fancy stitching to the crazy patchwork panels and machine stitched the binding in place.

Creatively ‘winging it’!

I am taking part in Hampshire Open Studios – here’s the link to my page on the website. We are half way through the 10 day art and craft trail. Throughout the County over 250 artists and crafters are opening up studio spaces, workshops and galleries for free and inviting people to follow the trail, dropping in on locations listed in their area.

The heart – getting perspective

Saturday Quilting Bring & Share – missed the date AGAIN! The draft is here in my laptop and I will add to it through the week as I endeavour to catch up on emails. I have to take a digression from patchwork and quilting in this post as I need to share the following before returning to my more regular subject.

So last week was filled with preparing my sewing room for Hampshire Open Studios.

All that activity was put into perspective by the failing health of a 90 year old friend.
