Ok, so I didn't finish my quilt at my workshop. I must 'fess up, but it was a very full timetable and we did so many things that my head is still spinning. My workshop was with Kay Haerland and it was really worthwhile. Although perhaps there wasn't much that was new to me, there was a lot of ways to use techniques and materials that I hadn't thought of. I think my journal quilts for the next six months are already mapped out! She also offers other workshops, so have a look at her website (above) and especially the gallery.
The quilt convention, as well as being a hectic four days, was also very busy.
Hopefully, as I have now tidied up and unpacked, I can finally get some work done.
Sometimes when I journal, I just randomly pick a word from whatever page I open in my old dictionary.
On this day, the word was Heirloom, and I thought about what might be an heirloom. My eye glaced over the box where all my lace is stored and this page, or really background, as it is not finished, was the result.
