Just thought of a new way to blog!!! I still feel like a newbie blogger and often think I'm getting it wrong somewhere, so I wondered what I could do to make things easier, so far I when I write posts I have sooo much to put on I forget half of it. Then last night (well around 3a.m. actually :-O) I had a EUREKA moment and thought 'why don't I do bits and pieces as they occur, if it's only a small piece I can save it to drafts and then publish when I have enough' Can't think why I didn't think of this before.
Last night was Severn Valley Quilters meeting which I was looking forward to, our Speaker was Sandi Lush Quilter extraordinaire (www.sandielush.co.uk) who makes the most beautiful whole-cloth quilts, her talk entitled 'Old Cloth to New Cloth' was the story of how she became a whole-cloth quilter, she showed us lots of lovely slides but towards the end of the talk she produced some quilts which she passed around, :-))) and one or two others which we could look at but not touch! Here is a picture of her with her Finale 'Tarian Aur' or 'Golden Shield'. (If you are wondering what is holding up the other corner it's her Hubby! ) I have had the pleasure of knowing Sandi for many years, and she was one of the first people I met at SVQ.
Now for a few from Show 'n' tell
|This is Jane being helped by Sheila showing us her 1st Quilt, made for her Daughter who is getting married later this year.|
|Here is Hilary one of our newer Members with her Sampler Quilt.|
|Trudy with 2 cushions made following the day workshop run by Jennie Lester last month on 'Stack & Whack with an Insert'|
|And Win, one of our long standing members, with a Baltimore panel cushion made at one of Sandi's workshops.|
That's all for today more soon.
