i've been playing with this technique to suspend textile pieces in a transparent frame or putting in transparent insertions to separate pieces - has lots of possibilities so i need to develop my ideas when i get time. have almost finished quilting my rust piece then it will need a bit of hand work to complete the textured look - will show you soon. must get going on the second piece because these two are destined for the loch lomond quilt show in may.
weddings apparently are like buses you don't get one for ages and then two come along together. my eldest son chris has just announced that he is getting married on 17th september-just 6 weeks after his brother! don't know yet whether i'll be asked to produce another wedding dress but working on the first one to get it just about finished apart from hems and final adjustment to side seams. still got 3 bridesmaids dresses to do - help!
off to meet the ladies at marsh quilters in leytonstone this evening and then next week down to cornwall to teach at roseland mews near liskeard thankfully colin is coming with me so don't have to do all the driving this time
