So, Quilt Festival finished three weeks ago now, and I have had a bit of time to myself. I have to ay I have enjoyed it. I've got back into my studio and have had a little fun just playing with fabric, the results of which I have posted. I am looking forward to using these pieces, and have already used some of it in my postcards.
I make fabric postcards and so far, have a grand total of eight! Not bad in a couple of weeks, I now have to buckle down and make more as I know these won't last long at the Art Emporium. I want to try and build up a stash so that I can keep them topped up rather than rushing to get a batch done in one go, it takes an hour or more to create one, so I have my work cut out for me, but, as they say, theres 24 hours in a day.
So in between doing that, I am already working on Workshops for next years Festival. I have been passed details of various teachers, and I am in the process of going through their proposals with help from two people who's input and opinion I value highly. So, watch this space as they say.......
The husband has been very long suffering lately. I bought a new cook book, The Foods of Israel by Joan Nathan, and have been using him as my guinea pig. So far, he seems to have enjoyed the dishes I have served up. Our Israeli visitors really inspired me, and I have had a lot of fun reading this book as there is a lot of information and a history lesson to boot really. He's pretty adventurous, but not much into rice and stuff, being more a meat and potatoes guy, at the moment he's not sure what is going to be dished up as I like to keep him on his toes.
I have also booked my flight to the UK for August!! I am going to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham and will be meeting up with the Quilters Guild of the British Isles to answer any questions and sort some stuff out. I think I am going to have my work cut out for me while I am there as I am hoping to promote next years Festival, Quilts of Great Britain, and, scout out countries for future years. I hope to get a little shopping in at the show, there are one or two suppliers I love to see as I have to internet order otherwise, so will save my shipping. So, as I say, just when you thought it was safe... it all starts again.!
