turkey shed in november

we've just had another very successful workshop day at the turkey shed this time playing with thermofax screens - printing, discharging and generally being creative!

Godshill Park Farm

just wanted to show you my lovely room at godshill park farm and include a few photos taken around the farm, full of rare breeds and interesting items like this sculptured tree trunk. I was very taken with some lovely wool fabric produced from one of the rare breed sheep I intend to make my self something with it eventually!!
so if you are interested in visiting the IOW I can recommend staying at godshill park farm

a trip to the Isle of Wight

the day after we returned from Cambodia I was on the move again travelling down to the Isle of Wight for a week's teaching at a quilting retreat courtesy of Oliven patchwork and craft shop in Newport. We were based at Godshill park farm a lovely B&B in an idyllic rural setting in the centre of the island
here are some of the girls working on their projects, some really lovely work had been done through the week and I'm looking forward to receiving photos of the completed pieces.

cambodia trip

well I've been so busy over the past few weeks that I really haven't had time to blog so there is a lot of catching up to do. firstly we had a fabulous holiday in Cambodia the temples around siem reap were absolutely amazing in their size and construction and the wealth of sculptural decoration more than lived up to my expectations
heres some images from Angkor wat the huge temple that we visited on the first day - more to come!
