I spent a lot of time in the car though. Last weekend I drove up to Derby to stay with my son on the way back I popped over to Redditch to the Needle Museum to have a look at Linda and Laura Kemshall's exhibition - it is beautiful so worth the trip. I love this quilt especially
it's huge but the detail is impressive. From there I drove down to London and visited the Knitting and Stitching show. I was a bit disappointed this year - the Beryl Dean and Diana Springall retrospectives were good but there was not much else to excite me. With one exception - Jiyoung Chung !!
Her paper works are really spectacular. View her website by clicking here. The only thing I purchased at the show was an open toed quilting foot for my Pfaff, as someone told me that Singer have taken over Pfaff and have closed all the European factories so parts may be hard to get for a while. I will have to check this out. Then on Thursday I drove back up to Bromsgrove to start a course with Ineke Berlyn. It's a landscape quilt course - something outside my comfort zone but I have gone with an open mind and so far have really enjoyed the first day. Being me, of course, I chose an urban landscape (New York, of course!!) rather than the traditional type of landscape. We worked in our sketchbooks - cutting a photo dividing it and colouring in the gap....not a bad job.....
We also did some dyeing -it's on the line at the moment.
Now I suppose I aught to get back to the queen of Hearts or the start of Muse 3.
