I don't know where the last week has gone.I suppose I have been organising bits and pieces. I forgot to bring any batting with me- which is proving a bit of a headache- as I am so used to using Matilda's Own and so happy with the product, that I am not sure what else to use. I could kick myself for not bringing any! I also came away with only hand stitching threads and as i have a number of things to make including a coloured version of the 72 MORE Ways Not to Stipple or Meander quilt for my upcoming book with Editions de Saxe I have been wondering what to do- thankfully Aurifil have come to rescue in the way of sponsorship- I am so grateful, as the collection of threads i had back home was at times called "enviable"- threads being an important element in the work I make.
And I have made one or two bags this week- they are samples for my friend Liwanag's project for the women she is teaching in the Phillipines- hopefully I can show images in my next blog.
And then there is getting familiar with your surroundings. the collage is of a little village about 5 minutes form here called Les Matelles. The centre of the village is medieval and has wonderful stone buildings and lots of stone arches. The day i took the photographs the light wasn't too wonderful but I will go back another day and see if I can't do better.it is very tempting to go out this morning as it is foggy- which would lend a certain atmosphere!
Ahh the day is beckoning- and today i really must do something in my paper journal- I had promised myself to improve my journal habits but that too has flown with time!
