Planned my next outings....

Although I am feeling a little more enthusiastic I still have not done any art work for a while. The purple/yellow quiltie I was going to send for the Unlimited threads swap is now not going anywhere - it has been snatched by the art fairies who lurk in my studio and use my work for their own purposes - a bit like The Borrowers ! - in other words I have lost it somewhere in the studio so am going to have to make a different quiltie!!!!

I wish all those who have become the 12 x 12 Quilt group much success - I will enjoy reading the blog to see what delights you all come up with!!
I have spent the last few wet weeks making an item go rusty outside - I am not going to tell you what it is until another post! Suffice it to say it is beginning to look good - I wrapped it with some small pieces of cream poly cotton and very impatiently left it for a week. Today I could wait no longer so I unwrapped it and these are the results. Itching for stitching.




I have now wrapped the item with three more pieces of the same fabric and will try to leave them alone for longer this time . These pieces of fabric came as a stack of off cuts from a scrap store years ago - The stack is about 10cm tall so there are loads to go !!! - they were all cut to the same size of 26cm x 12 cm so should be great for various sampling exercises and could eventually be a good size for postcards and ATC's!!

Anyway getting back to today's title - I have today planned myself an expedition for next weekend. On Saturday I am going to go to Upton House in Dorset to see the exhibition by Wessex Textile Artists and then on to see Yvonne Morton's own show Bournemouth University.

I have also booked my tickets as a visitor to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace. I am going on the Thursday for a change!!
