another long, thin piece in the making. i don't know why but i really like this format.

inspired by the old walls that surround us here - chalk, flint and old brickwork with lichen and foliage.

and here is pippa

this is pippa the baby flatcoat that goes to work with the army

introducing amber

hello - this is amber the springador. a labrador/springer spaniel cross, not sure what she's going to look like when fully grown but at the moment she looks very much like a lab - she's very good - most of the time!

and then there were four

here's our two girls with the new additions amber the springador and pippa the baby flatcoat - ashleigh in control with her dog training skills!

new project

here's a new project almost done. i've been using my technique with the cut and melted kunin felt but instead of tiles i'm working on fossils.

get a copy of my book 'tex-tiles and other treasures' to show you how to do it.

i'm going to make some linking pieces to complete the project - watch this space!

I have been working

inspired by an article by jeanelle mccall in april/may 2011 quilting arts i've made these bright new cushions for the sofa in our new house
