Time really Does Fly!

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 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!

I even made my own journal with my own home made paper and I still don't do it! Too hard - mind all over the place - but gee I'm sewing! Two quilts away tomorrow with all their bits (statements, labels, and all the hanging bits!) in place! Yeah - Ta Dijanne for giving me wings! One of them is all about Lino prints! You gave me the courage to do it!

How annoying about the batting - I could send you some Matilda's Own, if you want me too? Although I am sure there is some good stuff in Europe too!

That should be to, not too! (or do you want me to send myself over too, LOL! Wouldn't mind a trip to Europe!)
