I feel like I have been in a bit of a 'fog' since I returned from my trip .... a creative fog that is. To overcome this, I did some stitching. This little patch for a friend got me started ... and once I started ideas began to form for a new cloth I want to make. I am looking forward to the continuation of the Spirit Cloth Diaries with Jude and to an upcoming workshop with Roxanne of River Garden Studio ... that will get me back into my rhythm again.
I've decided to hand quilt this old quilt that I made for Norma many years ago too. Sometimes when mulling over ideas for my current project I like to have something I can sit and simply stitch without thinking .... to do some meditative stitching. I made this little quilt for my MIL a long time ago and was rushing to get it finished to give her for Christmas. Thus it was only quilted sparingly...just enough to hold it together. Now it will be quilted within an inch of its life...quiet time to think about Norma and projects I am working on.
Aren't these fabric snippets beautiful!!! My friend Dot gifted these to me on the weekend when we caught up. I have something special in mind for them. Textiles, my favourite gifts!
I recently bought these two pieces of wool flannel in grey and mustard... and these locally made variegated threads (gifts to send to a couple of friends). Aren't the colours gorgeous?
She keeps him company every day.... Oakey is old and sleeps most of the day, and most of the time you will find Minnie curled up with him. Sometimes he wakes up and wants to go out for a short time....Minnie leads the way and watches over him while he is outside. She knows he is blind and she has become his seeing eye cat. Aren't animals incredible?

Have a wonderful week.
