As Promised...

...some images from the Duxford Autumn Quilt Show (I will reveal my follies later)
Mostly Blue to Begin With - quilts shown with the labels, as this is easier than typing it all out
Possibly my favourite (and I had to wait ages to get a photo, as it was much crowded-around)

Also by Janet Stevens, this delicious miniature

Pat Hann's delightful banner, and the details of the same..

And this detailed and textural Door Curtain by Maureen Rhodes

Not least, this delightful stitchery..

More hand-stitch tomorrow..

Making It

This week's fun has included making things for our local (christmas with a small 'c') market.
So far....

A whole table full of the ever popular QUIP PEG BAG kits

And a forest full of FRONDE leaf purses (I know they look a bit strange like this, but they will be leaves eventually)

More things

So, Friday I went bookbinding (one has to learn new stuff) which was fun
Saturday, we went to Duxford to the Quilt Show, and I spent a lot of money...
Thursday's products included rather a good batch of Workshop Bags

Saturday evening I made pieces for little silk brooches

and today (Sunday) some little book covers

in various fabrics, some of which I bought at Duxford..
Images from the quilt show tomorrow
