working in Dublin at the K&S show

sometimes you really need somebody tall

lunch break

well it speaks for itself!

what's on my design wall

well this is on my design wall at the moment - not an art quilt in sight! after such a busy time with exhibitions this year all i really want to do is some straight forward sewing while i recharge my batteries. this is a return to a scrap quilt project started a long time ago. who would have thought that random half square triangles could be so theraputic and quite creative.
