Holiday Time

Well here I am with just under a week to go until I go to France on holiday with my eldest son and daughter in law.  I will be driving all the journey myself this time, as my other son is away travelling in Australia. I am taking both the dogs! 
Indie and Moosh
I have been busy setting up my own craft market at a local town and that is progressing along very well and the first will be in August. I am selecting handmade items to be sold by the makers.

I have also been following along with Kathy Shaw again and have just completed another of her fantastic online crazy quilt courses. This module teaches colour theory, design of blocks and piecing of blocks. I have pieced together a block using the 'strip sewing' method . . .  but it seems I should have angled the strips more - but that's the point of the exercise - to learn.

And so I shall start on more after my holiday and a very interesting experimental embroidery course that I shall be taking with my friend, Maria, at a lovely venue nearby.

Books, Bears and Linen!

Photo heavy post of my activities just lately - book covers, teddies and linen fabric gems!
